iQunix OS is a minimalistic Ubuntu-based Linux distribution. Its purpose is to offer to specialists and experienced Ubuntu users a "bare-bone", GNOME-based, Linux operating system in which nothing is pre-installed.
"You have seen many distributions out there that are fancy, full fledged with lots of preinstalled applications. But none of them are pure Operating System. In contrast, iQunix is just an operating system that after you install it, you are in charge."
"You have the total control over what and how you do install your applications, icons, themes and every other aspect that makes your Linux desktop experience unique." - says Salih Emin, the iQunix OS developer.
