Get Started With Adélie

Desktop is a first-class citizen, and we're out to prove that you don't need to compromise.
There's no need to be a command-line jockey.

We don't provide half-baked desktop software, and our daemons don't need to be fought.


We work side-by-side with kernel engineers, the musl libc project, and adjacent communities to create an environment that conforms to global operating system standards such as POSIX®.


We support your hardware, not just containers.

All of our software has been carefully tested on all of our supported platforms to ensure that you always enjoy the best possible experience.
