Welcome to mekOS ('Timber Wolf' edition). This is a bootable, live Linux distribution that includes a wide range of programs, emulators and tools. Originally we put together mekOS for House Euphrates, my Xbox Live Clan, with a focus on classic retro games and emulation. Overtime it has gained just about every type of program you can imagine, so it's not just about games, you can do just about anything!

What can I do with mekOS ?

Just about anything ! Not just games! With OpenOffice 3, lots of graphical & multimedia application and heaps of tools you can take your office and your desktop with you. And then there are the Emulators, all sorts of game consoles and old computer systems. The emulators are from XXXX and you can read about them here.
