Welcome to RoboLinux
Why is Robolinux So Popular?

Robolinux, however, does something unique. It is the only distro, to my knowledge, that makes working with Windows alongside Linux a little easier for the typical user. With just a few clicks, it lets you create a Windows virtual machine (by way of VirtualBox) that can run side by side with Linux. No more dual booting. With this process, you can have Windows XP, Windows 7, or Windows 10 up and running with ease.

And, you get all this on top of an operating system that is pretty fantastic on its own. Robolinux not only makes short work of having Windows along for the ride, it simplifies using Linux itself. Installation is easy, and the installed collection of software means anyone can be productive right away.

First off I would like to say thanks for a very robust & thorough distro. I've been a Linux user for close to 10 years now mostly using Ubuntu or Debian Sid and consider myself a power user. I came across your distro and my interest was piqued in regards to your Windows migration tools. After testing the live cd, I installed to my hdd and so far I've been a happy user. Your take on generating income via the distro is interesting and I agree wholeheartedly with your approach. Ignore the linux zealots who complain about someone charging money as anyone with basic common sense can see that you're charging for your time and creations via the Windows tools. I believe that you're performing a valuable service to try to bring more current and former Windows users to the Linux fold without having to learn partitioning, dual booting, grub, etc.

I hope that you're gaining customers and that the concept of Robolinux is working.

Best Regards,


"I have been using RoboLinux for over a month now and must say the more I use it the better and better it gets. I installed windows 7 in the virtual window and it just works great. I did use the backup and restore just to try it and it worked fine.I have had no crashes or hang ups. With Mint 17.1 and PClinux these distro's would do weird things at times. The one thing I especially like is that when the computer suspends it will awake fine. In all distro's except PClinux I would get a black screen. Also I did a mistake when I first donated to use Stealth VM and I corrupted the file when I downloaded it and I emailed the admin contact and they emailed the file within a hour. Great customer support"

I installed RoboLinux about a month ago and today, I decided to install a few other Linux distro's. Ubuntu and Manjaro. I did not like either one and decided to re-instal RoboLinux. I have installed and used many distributions of Linux over a period of 5 years and none of them performed was able to do what I wanted as well as RoboLinux. Beleive me, you will be satisfied with RoboLinux. The developer(s) knew what they were doing. I congradulate them for doing such as wonderfull job putting RoboLinux together for those that need a safe, secure, and fully functional distribution. I could write more but, It wouldn't be enough. You must try RoboLinux.

This is not a request. It is a thank for the best Linux distribution experience I have ever had. RoboLinux is by far the best Linux distro that I have ever tried and used. Hats off from me. The developers really know what they are doing. Keep up the good work...

I am new to linux and had ubuntu saw this tried it. What can I say its amazing! Download this you wont regret it.

John Mal

Thanks very much for the new driver
Wireless now working properly..
Very impressive technical support. 10/10



I really like Robolinux. It's installed on two machines here at the homestead. 7.5.6- v.64. You have done a great job with Debian. Please keep up the Great Work.

God has blessed you. I also run Linux Ultimate. When it's gone, The Ultimate Edition will be no more.

Bob Rutherford

John: It WORKS! You are a genius of the first order and this distro is the most exciting one I have ever worked with.Thank you,thank you, thank you! I can't say enough good things about it. You have made a man very happy. I was also blown away by the 'God Bless' at the end of the video. Are you doing this single-handedly?

Congratulations on the creation of a masterpiece.


Hi John, first make great compliments to you for ROBOLinux: is an excellent software in the world of Linux distro. You have engineered the inclusion of the VM, its use, the management of softwares Windows XP and 7 in a truly ingenious. If, then, our discussions have been useful, it will be more pleasant to use ROBOLinux for me!

Nice to have met you: best wishes for your work.

Best regards


Hi. I don't normally post feedback on linux distros, but I've previously done USB boots and installs of Ubuntu, Mint, Cinnamon, Puppy, Tails and others, and I just had to share how thrilled I am with Robolinux, easily being the best distro of Linux I have used, being the 'complete package' with a Windows alternative I've been searching for ( ever since Win 3.1 days lol ). In my book it can't be beat for the clean user friendly interface, lightning fast responsiveness even off of USB( I don't think i'll even need to install to my hard drive), driver compatibility and a FAQ/support I can actually understand ( those ubuntu forums are hard to follow ). I have run Robolinux off of a USB drive, and it is lightning fast, much faster than hard drive installs of other versions of linux I have run, comparable to the speed of the ultra lightweight puppy linux, but much more user friendly, sexier and cleaner in it's look and better for the modern hardware in my HP G6 laptop. If installing in Windows I'd recommend installing to USB with Universal USB installer vs Unetbootin which had errors. You might have to disable UEFI on windows 8 systems via the BIOS settings to enable boot options in startup. If you are on the search for the best Linux distro out there, definitely give Robolinux a try! Thank you developers!


Hi, i am so impressed with robolinux and how easy it is to use and install printers that I am considering being an afilliate to promote this excellent operating system and maybe make a small amount of money as well. do you have any links to instructions on how to do this please & would i be able to promote it on ebay with link to the download page?

Thanks again paul.

I loaded this on my Toshiba Satellite x205-7483 which was running Windows Vista & my Dell Studio 1735 which was running Windows Vista. I would say that after downloading the file which took me 1hr 10min. I had my systems up and running within 30 minutes, possibly 20 minutes with wireless drivers installed. I loaded several different distributions throughout this week and for me this one was the most user friendly.

Thanks again and keep up the good work,


Just found this on Distrowatch and gave it a spin in my Inspiron 15r and have now made it my default Distro. Very well done and thanks for all your hard work! Extremely fast and responsive on a 256GB SSD. Considering becoming an affiliate!

I am a long time windows user. Over the past couple of years I have attempted to migrate to linux, with varied success. Linux in general has so many more advantages but still a few drawbacks. In my opinion, it is not yet a total replacement for windows in ALL situations. Unfortunately many of us are still tied, for one reason or another, to windows to run certain pieces of software. I simply hate Win8. Win7 is good, but cost too much. WinXP is no longer supported.

I was looking for some alternative when I stumbled upon RoboLinux. I downloaded the latest version then made a bootable USB stick of the image. RoboLinux gave me the alternative I needed. I can use RoboLinux for all of my computer chores on a daily basis and with their VirtualBox XP or Win7 capability I can also run windows inside a VM when necessary. It just does not get any better than this.

RoboLinux just works out of the box. I installed RoboLinux on a old Dell Dimension 3000 and my printer was a HP Laserjet 4. In my case, it found my wireless card and had the printer drivers I needed. I also ran RoboLinux as a LIVE CD from my USB stick on my Dell Latitude E6400 and it ran flawlessly without even being installed yet. Flawless. And a quick install from start to finish. It is well worth the money as the RoboLinux website makea it all so easy.

I strongly advise anyone looking for an alternative to give RoboLinux a try. Goto www.robolinux.org


"Both printers working fine, no chance of viruses and a great looking desktop. I just love showing off the revolving desktop and pressing the middle mouse roller wheel and having the desktop change to a semi-see thru cylinder fantastic.

Thanks again for all your help."

Hello John Martinson, Founder of Robolinux.org

Thank for your hard work creating a beautiful distribution. I've loaded several different distro's and this one really works great. I downloaded the 64 bit version and wondered what your opinion was regarding me loading this distro on other computers I have. Basically, is it okay to load on other computers from the same disk? Also, I'm interested in the affiliate program and wondered if I need to purchase your yearly technical support package to qualify.

Thanks again for all your hard work,

Bryan Davis

"After my 12th Microsoft Windows virus a friend recommended I download Robolinux. Since then my PC runs 10 times faster and I have never gotten another virus. Keep up the good work!"

Actual web page post from a Robolinux User:


Finally a Linux Version that I love to use Over the years I have tried many Linux version and there were none that I liked to use, UNTIL NOW. ROBO-LINUX

Robo-Linux was easy to install and set up. But what makes it most useful it the if you have a License copy of Windows-XP you can have that installed in an Oracle Virtual Box that the runs in a Robo-Linux window. This not WINE, it is an actual copy of Windows-XP. You can run anything native XP can run.

For those interested, here's some links to there website:

Jørgen Michalow

"I found out about you from a comment someone left in an article about Kristy Ross Antivirus scamer from Google News last nite. Alot of people were explaining how most stuff now runs with Linux OS now and i like idea of not having to spend alot of time tweaking a new system.


Greg Moore

"At this time that's all the questions I have. About how I found out about Robolinux, is a little funny, I was looking through videos on the Youtube site about Bill Gates and Steve Jobs' contributions to the computer world, and saw a comment somewhere on one of them about robolinux running better than windows at a cost of only 39 95. I don't remember where it was but after a while I remembered the comment and used Google search to find the robolinux website. It really caught my attention so I decided to send the support message on how to install it on a new pc. Anyhow, Thanks for your time and support.


Ray Rivers"

"My name is Thom Dickey and I am the CEO of a non profit foundation in Oregon and I love Robolinux. Is it possible that we could have a video conference so that I could discuss how Amplegreen Foundation can help promote Robolinux? I would also like to do an interview with someone from your company about the way Robolinux will help improve a person's system. Would that be possible? Thank you"

Thom Dickey

"Took me 7 minutes to install. It's super cool looking, runs as fast as a jet and so easy to use, my Grandma can do it. Thanks for the best Linux OS I ever used!"

I loved robolinux so much I bought one for every employee in my office. No more paying for Microsoft Office anymore. FANTASTIC!"
