The Muppix Team have developed over 1300 proven commands using industry-strength Linux / Unix and can be used on any Windows PC, Apple, Linux, or Solaris. The commands are very fast and can be used on truly massive data-sets, They have been chosen for their comprehensiveness.
To use the Muppix commands you first need a Linux/Unix window/terminal.
For Apple , the Linux terminal is already built-in (Launchpad, Terminal) For Ubuntu, launch Utilities, Terminal
For Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7, 8, 10 download the free Linux terminal screen from either
1) Redhat's www.Cygwin.com and click below Current Cygwin DLL Version click on setup. We prefer Cygwin because it is very robust, comprehensive and the defacto Linux terminal for Windows. It runs all of Muppix commands
2) Boot - up using Knoppix from a USB stick. Knoppix is a complete Linux version & essential in fixing any broken PC. It runs all of Muppix commands
3) PortableApps Cygwin and select Download Cygwin 1.7.32 Development Test 1 - 32bit This version of Cygwin does most of what Muppix needs, but can run directly off a USB stick, without needing to install the software. 32bit will run on all PCs.
4) Portable MobaXterm also run directly from a USB stick. MobaXterm will open a Linux Terminal without installing any software. It has an easier interface, but some of the more unusual Unix command wont work.
These options just opens a Terminal/DOS screen, so that you can run the Linux/Muppix commands . It does NOT convert your PC to Linux. Also please note: Muppix does not contain commands that will make any system changes or cause damage to your PC.
