About Adélie Linux

What Sets Us Apart

Adélie Linux is an operating environment, based on the Linux kernel, that focuses on the following unique goals:

Full POSIX® compliance

One of our goals is to create a fully libre, open source operating system that passes POSIX® certification.

Multi-architecture compatibility

Adélie Linux is one of the few binary Linux distributions left that target many platforms. We believe that hardware belongs to you, and that you should be free to do whatever you like with the hardware you own.

Flexibility over politics

We ship a wide variety of packages, because we believe you should be able to make your own choices and decisions when using your computer. We provide the mechanisms, and you can make your own policies.
