Parabola GNU/Linux-libre is a free software community built, advanced user, Arch-derived distribution that aims to remove problematic non-free components that wreck havoc on a users freedom and control of the PC.

  • Parabola GNU/Linux-libre is a Free Software Foundation endorsed distribution made up of only 100% free software

  • Based on the popular Arch distribution (without the non-free components)

  • Ships on a fast USB flash drive with the data integrity of written images properly verified

  • We also authenticate images against the developers GPG keys to ensure authenticity of the images

  • Security conscious customers are also encouraged to run through our online instructions for authenticating the image written to the USB flash drive to ensure it contains what we shipped and matches what the GNU/Linux-libre developers intended, in other words, that the flash drive has not been intercepted by a significant adversary and tampered with or otherwise modified to include a backdoor or other malicious software

* Please note that while Parabola GNU/Linux-libre has support for a lot of hardware not all hardware is created equal and the user experience may suffer on systems that aren't fully supported or designed for GNU/Linux. If you need advice on the best hardware to get feel free to contact our support team.

* Please also note that installation support is not included in this offering as the distribution is aimed at more advanced users and may require significant reading of documentation and possibly contact with other Parabola GNU/Linux-libre users via the official IRC channel in order to figure out how to get around any current undocumented bugs in the distribution. As Parabola GNU/Linux-libre is a rolling release distribution that aims to be more up to date than easy to use users should expect to encounter more difficulty during the installation and use.

Parabola GNU/Linux-libre comes in various flavors. If you are unfamiliar with the differences check out the Parabola Download Page for more information.
