SphinUX the First Open Source 100% Egyptian OS

14 Jan, 2013

A number of Egyptian developers has launched sphinUX which is the first 100% Egyptian and Arab open source OS.

The OS used to be based on Linux distribution Debian, but they developed an enhanced Kernel (LS Kernel) and launched in on the release RC2-Build21.
A powerful mix of 40% Debian kernel, 40% Hurd kernel and 20% our own Lightning Speed kernel. 

Debian Linux kernel is responsible of interacting directly with the main system components while Hurd kerneldealing with cryptology and encryption layer as well as handing hardware components and Lightning Speedkernel deals mainly with memory
addressing and mapping with artificial intelligence capabilities boosting the overall performance of the core system.

The OS has also the first Egyptian Encryption cypher. XOR ++. Based on unbreakable “XOR the perfect cypher” avoiding it’s problem with the huge encrypted message length, XOR++ configurable key length of 4096 bit and up to any key length encrypt your data without any troubles. 

All your Sphinux OS session is fully encrypted with XOR++ technology, No one can even steal “sniff” and reveal any part of your data packets any more.

The system requirements to run the OS are minimal and they are:
ram: 256 mb
processor: 500 Mhz processor
disk space: 9GB On disk and 1 GB SWAP space.

The system has many applications that are ready to use: Development, Editors, Education, Games, Office, Multimedia, Internet, Graphics, Islamic Software, System and Utilities.
Sphinux OS supports Debian repositories, Debian packaging system “.deb” and ALL Linux applications. 

The OS funding is based upon users contributions ( your welcomed to donate) and can be downloaded from here.

    I think the updated news of the OS are only available at facebook at present (http://www.facebook.com/Sphinux), due to the shutdown of the website.

    We are promised that final release will be on March, 3, and I think that src code will be available then.

    This is just debian Linux rebranded and badly packaged KDE flavor.

    All their claims on speed and performance are big lies and the Linux community is asking them to stop their Jock OS.

    see the post and testing results on this fake Linux from real Linux developers on phoronix

    This is a dangerous distribution. Fake. Stay away from this one. Malware.

    I totally expected that 🙂

    This is a great OS despite what haters say it is a Malware it is not
