Hikarunix is an operating system based on Linux, devoted to Go. Designed to fit on a mini-CD, you can take it with you and boot up most computers from the CD, and once you’ve booted up, a variety of well-known Go playing and Go studying tools are available to you.

The download is just under 200Mb for version 0.3, so not recommended for modem users. However, many thanks to Hugo van der Merwe, who has made a version available for free download within the Stellenbosch University firewall. Note that this version is inaccessible from outside the university’s network.

To download Hikarunix from Hugo’s site, click here.

    Let me know if there is any other nice software that is of interest to Stellenbosch University Go community. I will download practically anything useful on nearly a weekly basis – with the purpose of helping people on the network get nice software without paying per MB.

    (cgoban2 2.6.10 is “outdated”, I will see if I can download 2.6.12 next weekend, hopefully. Anyone know why KGS lags so much from the university network? It seems much better at home… at Univ it is unplayable.)

    Hikaru Anime no longer available.

    Sure, this doesn’t really have much to do with Hikarunix, but I thought this is an ok place to post the comment. (“Out of the way” for people not specifically looking for comments.)

    I’ve got 1.1 gigs of data sitting on my harddrive from the torrent that contains the “2004 new year’s special”, but the files have not completed downloading yet – thus, “corrupt”, in a way. A recent power failure stopped my download, now I cannot resume it. Grr.

    I suppose the link (to “Hikaru no Go Torrents”, under resources) can now be removed.
