ArtistX – The Linux Distro for Artists

Old No Comments on ArtistX – The Linux Distro for Artists 42

ArtistX is a fantastic Ubuntu based Linux Distro developed by Marco Ghirlanda in Milan, Italy.  It features a wide range of free 2D/3D graphic, audio, and video editing soft-ware that can be installed or accessed via live-USB booting; to make any machine into a fully equipped production suite.

The range of soft-ware included in ArtistX is quite impressive. Some of them being Blender for 3D modelling, Gimp for 2D image alteration, Animata for cartoon animation, and Cinepaint for video editing. A full list can be found on the ArtistX website.

I’ve been using this distro for a while now and I have to say my impressions are very good. It runs well with very little lag on my low end netbook. The design is simple and nice. But most of all the provided arsenal of soft-ware gives you everything you could possibly want, to work on almost any sort of project whether it be film, animation, or writing.

If you’re on a tight budget and looking for a great OS designed for creative individuals that maintains a Linux environment, ArtistX is definitely for you.
