"Nitrux is a Linux distribution that does not support x86 or 32-bit software via Debian packages. With that being the case, it’s no surprise that to some users, that means that there’s no way to use Wine in Nitrux.

That is, however, not true. You can use Wine in Nitrux; in fact, we already include it as an AppImage."

"Nitrux is an Ubuntu-based distribution that features one of the nicest out the box KDE desktops around. They recently released their latest version of 1.3.2, which now features OpenRC in place of systemd!"

PSA. As we mentioned in the changelog for version 1.3.2, Calmares-qml does have issues when using "Replace" and "Install alongside"; the cause of the problem is described on GitHub.

However, you can use the non-QML version of Calamares in the Live session.

PSA. We have moved previous ISO files in Sourceforge and OSDN to a directory called Archive or ISO Archive.

Please note that the current ISO is under Releases or ISO, respectively.
