Software Product Description

ArtistX is a free DVD which turns a computer into a full multimedia production studio.

It is based on Ubuntu GNU/Linux and contains nearly all the available free audio, 2D and 3D graphics, and video software for the GNU/Linux computing platform. It doesn't need to be installed, and boots directly into a running system without touching hard drives. The files produced with ArtistX can be easily stored on USB devices or CD/DVD medium while it is running. If you want to install it please take a look to our documentation and the ArtistX Installation Manual.

System Requirements:

Minimum of 512 Mb RAM and 20 GB of HD space (applies to virtual machine installation too). See full installation guide here:

After nearly ten years of development and more than ten versions, the ArtistX 1.5 multimedia studio on a DVD is finally here. It's an Ubuntu 13.04-based live DVD that turns a common computer into a full multimedia production studio. ArtistX 1.5 includes the 3.8 Linux kernel, GNOME 3.6 and about 2.500 free multimedia software packages, nearly everything that exists for the GNU/Linux operating system organized in the menu. Main features: based on Ubuntu 13.04 without Unity and with all updates (from April 2013); most of GNU/Linux multimedia packages and the very easy Ubiquity installer. A partial list of software included in the DVD is available at the software page, the /usr/bin directory (where software executables are kept on a Linux system) counts more than 5000 binaries. We have now a new Forum and a new Software page with the TOP 100 free software available in ArtistX!
