With modest hardware requirements it is suitable for modern workstations and older hardware alike.

    Ubuntu Mate has a number of guiding objectives and goals.

    -Accessible to all, regardless of language and physical ability.
    -Increase both Ubuntu and Small MATE iconMATE Desktop user adoption.
    -Ubuntu alternative for computers that aren't powerful enough to run a composited desktop.
    -First choice Ubuntu platform for remote workstation solutions such as LTSP and X2Go.
    -Restore the halcyon days of Ubuntu before Unity was introduced.
    -Use themes and artwork similar to Ubuntu so that Ubuntu Mate is immediately familiar.
    -When possible contribute to Debian so both the Debian and Small Ubuntu iconUbuntu communities benefit.
    -Package selection will favour functionality and stability over lightness and whimsy.

  • Subgraph OS

    Free Linux OpenPGP Website

    Subgraph believes that the best way to empower people to communicate and live freely is to develop technology that is secure, free, open-source, and verifiably trustworthy.

    Subgraph OS is an important part of that vision.

    The Internet is a hostile environment, and recent revelations have made it more apparent than ever before that risk to every day users extends beyond the need to secure the network transport - the endpoint is also at risk.

    Subgraph OS was designed from the ground-up to reduce the risks in endpoint systems so that individuals and organizations around the world can communicate, share, and collaborate without fear of surveillance or interference by sophisticated adversaries through network borne attacks.

    Subgraph OS is designed to be difficult to attack. This is accomplished through system hardening and a proactive, ongoing focus on security and attack resistance. Subgraph OS also places emphasis on the integrity of installable software packages.

    Designed for Usability
    Subgraph believes that security and usability are not necessarily mutually exclusive. One of our objectives is ease of use, particularly for privacy tools, without compromising effectiveness.

    Subgraph OS is based on a foundation designed to be resistant to attacks against operating systems and the applications they run.

    Subgraph OS includes built-in Small Tor iconTor integration, and a default policy that sensitive applications only communicate over the Tor network.

    Secure Communication
    Subgraph OS ships with a new, more secure IM client, and an e-mail client configured by default for Small OpenPGP iconOpenPGP and Tor support.

  • Fedora

    Free Linux Website

    The Fedora Project is an openly-developed project designed by Small Red Hat Enterprise Linux iconRed Hat Enterprise Linux , open for general participation, led by a meritocracy, following a set of project objectives. The goal of The Fedora Project is to work with the Linux community to build a complete, general purpose operating system exclusively from open source software. Development will be done in a public forum. The project will produce time-based releases of Fedora about 2-3 times a year, with a public release schedule. The Red Hat engineering team will continue to participate in building Fedora and will invite and encourage more outside participation than in past releases. By using this more open process, we hope to provide an operating system more in line with the ideals of free software and more appealing to the open source community.

  • CoreOS

    Free Linux Website

    CoreOS is a new Linux distribution that has been rearchitected to provide features needed to run modern infrastructure stacks. The strategies and architectures that influence CoreOS allow companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter to run their services at scale with high resilience. We've implemented them correctly so you don't have to endure the slow, learn-as-you-go infrastructure building process.

    CoreOS can run on your existing hardware or on most cloud providers. Clustering works across platforms, making it easy to migrate parts of your gear over to CoreOS, or to switch cloud providers while running CoreOS.

    Check out the docs to get started and GitHub to view our code. Our developer newsletter is the best way to stay up to date on the latest developments. If you’re interested in working one-on-one with CoreOS engineers, we offer a paid pilot program with a sneak peek at new features.
