“APODIO live discs provide a wonderful means of introducing the world of Linux audio software to potential new users and are likely to become a common first experience for many converts.”
Computer Music Journal – Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

“Apodio systems can be run in “live” mode, i.e. you put the distribution disc in your CD drive, you reboot, and voila, you’re booted into the system. Basically the live mode runs itself from a RAM disk and the distribution CD. The process is transparent, except for the occasional disc reads. The systems can be installed to a hard-drive, but to keep things simple for myself I’ve tested them only in live mode.” Linux Journal







Apodio 11 is made by Apo33 (Jenny Pickett, Julien Ottavi, Romain Papion and our community)
