Instalinux Alternatives

    Instalinux is described as 'simple, easy way to install Linux. You follow the steps in the System Designer to choose from a bunch of different distributions and versions of Linux, and to choose what software you want included' and is an app in the OS & Utilities category. There are four alternatives to Instalinux for Linux and Online / Web-based. The best alternative is Customizer, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Instalinux are Systemback (Free, Open Source), Distroshare Ubuntu Imager (Free, Open Source) and Linux Respin (Free, Open Source).
