14.0 KIWI

KIWI is a system for creating operating system images. An image is a directory with a file containing the operating system, its applications and configurations, the file system structure of the OS, possible additional metadata, and (depending on the image type) also disk geometry and partition table data. With KIWI you can create LiveCDs and LiveDVDs, USB sticks, virtual disk to play in full virtual systems like VMware, XEN images for paravirtualization in a hypervisor, and a PXE environment to boot from network.
