The Redox official website


We have a lot to show since the 0.7.0 release! This release, care has been taken to ensure real hardware is working, i686 support has been added, features like audio and preliminary multi-display support have been enabled, and the boot and install infrastructure has been simplified and made more robust. I highly recommend skimming through the changes listed below before jumping into the images, if you want more details.

Helix 🧬

From the book:

We are not a Linux clone, or POSIX-compliant, nor are we crazy scientists, who wish to redesign everything. Generally, we stick to well-tested and proven correct designs. If it ain’t broken don’t fix it.

That almost sounds sane! Refreshing to see a project which doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel.


Agreed. And the developer is a System76 Engineer and Pop!_OS Maintainer.

I’ve tried the new ISO image on real hardware, and that was fine, except that I have no supported NIC for network. I guess in the future when Redox OS has better USB support I can try again with a NIC adapter for USB.

12M I’m looking forward to test too, is the performance better compared to the Linux kernel?

I’ve only booted from USB flash drive, and I think it did not make much difference with booting Linux from USB. The amount of apps is very minimal. In that regard Haiku OS has much more choice.

(Your comment is visible on but on the instance I use. Commenting like this, hope that is fine)
