Chapeau includes system tools that are useful for analysing & tuning your system or fixing broken ones. All are usable from a live booted session.

Wine made easy

You can run thousands of Windows programs with a few clicks with the preinstalled PlayOnLinux & Wine.

Virtualisation is a cinch

Manage remote hosts & fire up those VMs on Linux KVM in no time, all in the same window.

Thousands of packages

Chapeau is built on Fedora so what runs on Fedora runs on Chapeau. Extra software sources are pre-configured to make even more packages available to you.

Rich media support & third-party content

Curated for all users
