The Groovix demo provides an easy way to try Groovix on your hardware and can be run "live" without making changes to your computer. The demo is just one example of what's possible with Groovix and includes a whitelisted card catalog mode and a web/office mode with simple time management. We can customize every aspect of the software for you including time quotas, reservations, print management, filtering, acceptable use policies, authentication and remote management. We can customize Groovix to support additional hardware and software as well.

  • select the "Groovix Live" option to try the Groovix demo without modifying your existing files on the hard drive
  • steps for the different ways to install Groovix can be found in the Groovix Installation Guide page

Here are some tips for trying out the demo disc:

  • the demo Card Number is demo and the PIN is 1234
  • the root password is groovix
  • after logging in, pressing Ctrl-Alt-g will bring up the Groovix Menu, the password is groovix

Note: Running Groovix Live from DVD/USB is relatively slow to start up and requires more system resources than a normal installation. For full speed operation, a hard drive installation is recommended.
