This release is based on the last Xubuntu "stable" or "LTS" version (8.04). It has all the programs in Xubuntu plus both desktop and server bioinformatics applications. As a server DNALinux includes BLAST, Primer3Plus and MySQL. Full list of pre-installed bioinformatics software is available here: [link].

Since this distribution is a 12Gb VMWare Virtual Machine, it is compressed with 7z (to 2.3Gb) and uploaded using bittorrent protocol. Torrent file is available from the download page: http://www.dnalinux.com/download.php. Please seed the image if you can.
