Buy GoblinX on CD in our cart or you can download GoblinX.iso and burn it to a CD and boot from it as a Live CD. This way you can see if its for you or not before installing. Users wanting to install on a USB download the .zip file and unzip it to your USB device. Then run bootinst.sh if you’re on Linux or bootinst.bat if you’re on Windows to make it bootable.

    I’ll burn GoblinX to a CD and give it a spin. I doubt it would pull me away from Ubuntu, but it’s nice to be familiar with what’s out there.

    I doubt it too! 🙂 but this version does feel a lot smoother and more polished than some of the previous 2.xx series versions i tried. Thanks for participating today.
