This article reports on the sponsorship by Cybernet Systems Corp. of the NetMAX Desktop Project, an open-source development group that produces a desktop package based on secure Linux under the General Public License, as of July 2005. NetMAX DeskTOP is a live-CD distribution of Linux, using the same distribution upon which Cybernet's NetMAX Server products are based. The NetMAX Desktop distribution seeks to fill the role of a fully-functional enterprise class desktop system without licensing fees, and includes applications for standard desktop needs such as desktop publishing, web surfing, and multimedia features. In contrast to many other live-CD distributions, the NetMAX Desktop has been designed to be intuitive enough for non-computer savvy folks to use--and even includes integrated Windows application support. The distribution can be used on most computers without harming their contents via a bootable CD, or can be installed to a hard drive as a permanent operating system replacement. Cybernet Systems Corp. develops products and technologies that standardize and simplify networked connectivity and computing functions through Linux.
