LXtoo is a customized Linux distribution for bioinformatics research. The "LX" is the acronym that stands for LiangXian (浪险) in Teochew language (潮州话), and the "too" part is to indicate that LXtoo is based on Gentoo.
LXtoo is developed using free and open source software (FOSS). It aims to present a fast, flexible, portable, and powerful computing platform, coming with most commonly used bioinformatics software pre-compiled, installed, and configured.
LXtoo is distributed as a LiveCD, and can be booted from the CD without making any changes to the underlying operating system, or can run within the popular VMware environment, in parallel with the host operating system. This makes the system portable and useful for new users to try it out, or for those want to demonstrate software to others. LXtoo can also boot from LiveUSB using UNetbootin to creat bootable LiveUSB, and installing to hard driver is recommended for advanced users.
