About Annvix



Annvix is currently a concept work-in-progress. It's aim is to be a secure Linux OS based on Mandrake Linux. Unlike Corporate Server, which is a fine server operating system, Annvix will be much more scaled down with a lot of additional security features.

Currently Annvix is in the conceptual build stage. The first version will be based on Mandrake Linux 9.2 with a lot of cleanup and enhancements.

This is a personal project that I am embarking on as I have a strong interest in a secure Linux-based OS that is easy to use and maintain (urpmi has spoiled me). Unfortunately, this type of product is not on MandrakeSoft's radar at the moment so I'm essentially scratching my own itch. Anyone with a similar itch is more than welcome to help out.

The details still need to be worked out, but at this point I am working on Annvix for two reasons: The first is to use myself on my servers, and the second is as a proof of concept to show that a secure Linux system can be both easy to use and very secure.
