gnuLinEx is a Linux distribution developed by the Extremadura Regional Government in Spain. gnuLinEx is based on Debian, a Linux distribution that, thanks to its design, makes it easy to create other distributions that can inherit its advantages and get rid of some of its faults (for example, the difficulty of setup and configuration). By using a modified Debian distribution, the Extremadura Regional Government has benefited from the fact that there is a large amount of varied software for it. As a matter of fact, there are 8710 different software pieces. The stability, speed and security of Debian should also be underlined. When it was created, gnuLinEx was based on the then latest stable Debian distribution: 2.2 or Potato. Nowadays, the version based on the new stable Debian version (3.0 or Woody) is available, along with two revisions or updates.
