Purpose and Many Uses of Patriot
Add a new layer of security online. Patriot is a Linux based operating system. Linux has proven to be safer online. Avoid all those attacks designed specifically to target the Windows® operating system. During installation, Patriot can install itself alongside Windows® for truly a dual booting system with OS options displayed at boot time. You can also run Patriot directly from a DVD or a USB stick or install it as a stand alone operating system.
Make Older - Slower Computers Run Like New Again. Patriot utilizes less resources so those older machines boot and run applications faster. Re-purpose those computers that you thought couldn't keep up anymore. Examples: Install Patriot on a Dual CPU Laptop or Desktop with as little as 1Gb of RAM and as little as 8.6Gb of available hard drive space and give it to a child or to your parents or grandparents to use. Better still, create a Patriot home computer specifically for making those online transactions more securely.
Patriot Redefines Computer Portability! Carry Your Patriot With You Anywhere There's a Host Computer. Patriot can reside entirely on a bootable DVD or USB stick making it possible to easily and securely carry your Patriot in your pocket or purse. We sell both DVD's and USB sticks pre-installed with a bootable and an installable copy of Patriot. Of course, you can download Patriot and install it yourself to your own digital media totally free!
Patriot is great for kids too! Patriot wasn't specifically designed for kids - but.... With Patriot's special visual application Dock and SlingShot Launchpad, children who haven't quite learned to read should have no trouble learning to navigate their Patriot . Patriot is also equipped with applications to aid those with visual and physical impairments. Donate to keep the projects going!
