Your linux deployment tool!
m23 is a free software distribution system (license: GPL), that installs (via network, starting with partitioning and formatting) and administrates (updates, adds / removes software, adds / removes scripts) clients with Debian, (X/K)Ubuntu, LinuxMint, openSUSE, Fedora and CentOS. It is used for deployment of Linux clients in schools, institutions and enterprises. The m23 server is controlled via a web interface. A new m23 client can be installed easily in only three steps. Group functions and mass installation tools make managing a vast number of clients comfortable. The integration of existing clients (with .deb-based distributions) into the system is possible, too. Client backup and server backup are included to avoid data loss. With the integrated virtualisation software, m23 can create and manage virtual m23 clients, that run on real m23 clients or the m23 server. Scripts and software packages (for installation on clients) can be created directly from the m23 web interface.

A light weight, full featured Linux distro with unique features
Our unique distribution of Linux with specific design goals for common usage across multiple devices and applications. Designed with the end user in mind and by a 15-year veteran of IT administration, the interface is simplistic and logical yet powerful. This distribution has no long term goals of entering the enterprise level market, but instead will focus on embedded, personal, and professional environments ranging from SOHO to medium sized organizations. While this OS can be installed to storage devices, it was designed to run entirely within RAM to make it as fast and responsive as possible. Other unique features include a non-standard but logical division of system and user, several alternative directory names for consistency among newer versions of Windows and Mac OS, with user interaction through multiple interfaces including command line, graphical, and web. Once you begin using it, you will quickly see why we use "Achieve zen with XiniX" as the slogan for this project!
