PureOS is a French free and open source operating system (OS), based on Debian. It can either be used as LiveCD or installed on the hard drive and used as a full-featured OS. It has two versions - PureOS and PureOSlight.
As of late August 2013, the official website has been reduced to a login interface featuring the words "This website is closed since Aug. 23, 2013." No indications of current or future development of the project appears forthcoming, suggesting the effort may have been ended.
PureOS uses GNOME or Openbox by default, with the OpenOffice.org suite, instead of KOffice. It also goes with Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird, Vim, and GIMP (image manipulation program) preinstalled by default. PureOSlight is made for performance and thus uses Xfce instead of KDE[clarification needed] and does not have a complete office suite, but includes instead separate programs including AbiWord for word-processing and Gnumeric for spreadsheet.
