Nixsys Public Access UNIX System

Nixsys PAUS are shutting down, effective 11 Sep 2017. New account creation has been disabled for a long time, as incentive and will to work on this project subsided years ago. It's been fun, but it's time to call it quits.

When this project began, having high-speed Internet access and the ability to download an OS image quickly wasn't possible. Website hosting was expensive and required a fair amount of technical knowledge to use effectively. That is no longer the case.

For those who want to explore different operating systems and learn how to setup services, one can download VirtualBox and any UNIX-like OS within an hour. Getting your content online, albeit with various AUP sorcery, is as simple as opening a account. This project is simply not useful any more.

Thanks to our users, past and present, for all your support in every form. It's appreciated greatly. You have until 30 Sep 2017 to procure new hosting. Thereafter, the data on this system will be destroyed permanently.


Users have until 20 Oct 2017 to move their data. If you need help with this, mail the system administrator. Thanks for all your messages.
