Refined. Reliable. Ready.

Adélie Linux brings the security, power, and performance of Linux to everyone. We combine the venerable Alpine Linux with our deep knowledge and experience with hardware and software to produce Adélie. We do believe that Linux should be usable by anyone, regardless of income level or past computer experience. We don't believe that Linux has to be hard to use.

For the technically minded, we have split packages allowing you to install only the features you want, akin to USE flags or ./configure options. For those who just want to use their computer without needing to memorise books worth of command lines, we have an easy-to-use installation system. Welcome to the future.

Freedom over politics.

Adélie Linux gives you the choice to run your system your way. Your freedom, privacy, and right of choice are what truly matters. We allow you to make your own decisions about what you use, while still providing safe defaults so you don't need to be an expert in computers to have expert-level privacy and security.

Run (don't walk) everywhere.

What you need, where you need it. Whatever you use, Adélie runs on your hardware. Adélie runs on modern desktops, servers, embedded x86 devices, desktops and laptops based on the PowerPC architecture, and devices based on the MIPS architecture.
