-> About Linux Netwosix:
  Linux Netwosix is a powerful and optimized Linux distribution for servers and 
  Network Security related jobs.  It can also be used for special operations such 
  as penetration testing with its big collection of security oriented software and 
  sources. It's a light distribution created for the requirements of every SysAdmin 
  and it's very portable and highly configurable. Our philosophy is to give greater 
  liberty for  configuration to the SysAdmin. Only in this way can he/she configure 
  a powerful and stable server machine. Linux Netwosix also has a powerful ports 
  system (Nepote) similar to the xBSD systems but more flexible and usable.
