Academix GNU / Linux Project: the distribution for academic use that you should know

Academix desk

Academix GNU / Linux is a distribution based on Debian GNU / Linux, and developed by a community putting emphasis on teaching. Therefore, on the solid foundation provided by the Debian community, its developers have added a multitude of free programs for education. This didactic software, made up of more than 140 packages, is aimed at various educational levels, both for courses from primary education to secondary or higher education.

In addition to containing packages that can help educators and serve students, its developers want to make it easy for you, with a configuration mode through which you can install the entire pack of programs with a single mouse click, among which you will find apps from different categories such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, geography, biology, statistics, electronics, drawing, office automation, music, programming, audio and video editing. Likewise, the distribution is translated into several languages ​​such as Spanish, English, Italian, French and Romanian, so that there are no language barriers.

If all this seems attractive to you, there are also some extras such as interactive virtual laboratories, a special section to teachers which allows them to create various posts for their students, etc. Among all this material you will find both programs that you can find in other distros, especially among the Debian repositories, and also other additional software used in quite prestigious universities in the US and Europe.

Its desktop environment allows you work intuitively and graphics using a modern desktop and with a low consumption of resources, so it can work on computers with less powerful hardware or older computers. This also makes it possible to adapt to educational environments that do not have high budgets or state-of-the-art equipment, being able to have the same tools regardless of the budget. And of course, the integrated software, being under the GPL or BSD license, has no costs as the owner.
