Zephix is a live Linux operating system based on Debian's stable branch. It runs totally from removable media without touching any files stored on the user's system disk. The aim of Zephix is to provide a free modular operating system that users can carry with them and use wherever there is a laptop or a desktop system available. The default ISO image comes without any graphical desktop, but a "desktop" module (with LXQt) is available separately, together with a "firmware" module and various popular application modules.

very highly flexible, portable as well, not any useless software preinstalled, a system as it should be. If I get it booting from hard drive (hopefully will find any documentation about how to do that), it definitely will become my daily driver :)

Looks great if you like a clean looking desktop without any unnecessary bells and whistles.

Probably good if you're coming from Windows as it has a similar bottom taskbar and simple classic start-menu on the left.

The icons even look win-like.

You can also change the t heme in settings to have a different look if you want.

Only probs i've had is slow internet and slow page loading in browsers.

Also had to uninstall Stacer as it kept crashing.
I re-installed from synaptic package manger and it runs correctly now.
Shows you a root password prompt when you're ready to clean up the apt cache.

Another odd quirk is no browser .
I had to install a browser from synaptic package manager.

Overall a pretty good OS and one i would definitely use if it improves a little bit in the future.

Very nice, based on stable of the debian, and nice designed desktop, i like it and small ISO size is good for low

I use Slax and live distros, becouse i don not want erase/touch hardisk on my new netbook, who have
legal windows 10 license, i think more people want try linux witthout installing but want more usefull
live cds, maybe with persistent changes stroing and so, i think now is era of 2 in 1 and cheap windows
devices, most people need live cds who can put into to USB key and boot from it.
