AOSC Temporary Portal

Welcome to Anthon Open Source Community (AOSC)! We are a group of free and open technology enthusiasts working hard for improvements.

We are currently under heavy work load for the new and better community portal. This is a temporary information portal, here you can find basic info with downloading AOSC OS, and important news or information.

  • You can view the new work-in-progress page here.
  • You can help us with the development by joining #aosc on freenode.

Downloads

AOSC OS is available for you to download freely, in all languages. Pick your chocolate for the day!

What are my choices?

AOSC OS is available in (many) different flavors, ranging from various architectural ports, to different desktop environments and usages.

  • Tarball releases, for regular installation.
  • Docker releases, for fast deployment.
  • BuildKit releases, for developers.

AMD64 releases

AMD64, or x86_64 is the current main focus of AOSC OS development. This is the achitecture to use for most of the modern PCs and servers. This branch is stable and suitable for personal use.


Tarball releases

BuildKit

Will it run on mine...

Please refer to the system requirement listed below.

  • CPU: AMD64 or compatible, faster the better
  • RAM: 1 GiB, the more the better
  • HDD: 8 GiB of HDD space
  • NET: Internet connection advised

For running KDE you may want more RAM.


How to install...

Please refer to the installation guide.

The "Core version" listed to the left are meant to tell from between versions of AOSC OS rather than just using date tags.

For a complete rationale of "Core version", please refer to the Core repository.

ARM releases

ARM is an experimental port of AOSC OS, under heavyd development. The ARM port will be available for a variety of devices with ARMv7 or ARMv8 (64-bit) processors, like cell phones (cellular support not in plan), tablets, and development boards.


ARMv7, Hard Float

ARMv8, AArch64 (Experimental)

BuildKit

Will it run on mine...

Please refer to the system requirement listed below.

  • CPU: ARMv7/8 processors with hardware FPU
  • RAM: 0.2 GiB, the more the better
  • HDD: 2 GiB of storage space
  • NET: Internet connection advised

Requirement varies between different versions.
