Abstract: The article provides an updated view on the world of linux distributions tailored for bioinformatics analysis. The driver for making these distributions available is to provide an easy-to-use, user friendly environment for non IT specialised users without strong requirements on the knowledge of the technology. An advance that has been noticed in respect with the review we made in 2007 is the tendency to use Ubuntu as base distribution which is in fact replacing knoppix and to provide the bioinformatics bench environment also as a virtual machine which can be run inside the popular VMWare environment in parallel with the host operating system.
