Adélie Linux is one of the few binary distributions left that target non-x86_64
CPUs. You can view a full list of our supported platforms
on this site. 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 different init systems and desktop environments 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.
Installation routines that make sense
We are putting major effort into writing our own installer, code-named Horizon,
that will be just as flexible as our distro. Our goals for Horizon include fully scripted
installations, a quick start mode for people new to Linux, and the ability to fully
customise disk layouts and packages installed for those who know exactly what they want.
Stop In and Say Hi
We'd love to hear from you. You can find us all over the Internet!
Almost everything; POSIX® specification knowledge, Portage integration, musl patches,
porting, walking reference on x86 and PowerPC CPUs.
Growing up, my grandfather introduced me to computer programming on his PC XT.
My grandmother was a computer programmer at a university, and my mother was a Perl scripter
for our church's Web site in the 1990s. I've always been around technology and my family's
wonderful legacy of nerdiness lives on in me.
I have a passion for using technology to solve problems, and thoroughly enjoy helping others.
I'm at my happiest when these combine, and I'm able to help people through software I've written.
In my spare time I like to listen to EDM, play the piano and guitar, read books,
and spend time with good friends and family.

Growing up, a recurring theme was "making old things work again". From the
derelicted Apple II in my kindergarten classroom, to old LCs and Colour Classics
at my high school, the various cameras I collect, and the clocks I occasionally
repair. Now, working with my fellow Adélie contributors, I can make yet more
mechanisms reach the peak of their performance.
