Project PIOS is now available! (Now Discontinued)

Yes, you heard it folks: The first alpha build of Project PIOS is available for download!

For those who don’t know, Project PIOS is an open source linux distribution made specifically for the Raspberry Pi. Project PIOS is based on a minimal installation of Raspbian Linux, which is basically a version of Debian Linux optimized for the Raspberry Pi.

The main goal of Project PIOS is to be a desktop-centric operating system, however we're going to be offering compatibility with the Raspberry Pi accessories and features, such as the Camera Module.

Project PIOS is currently in Alpha, and won't be complete for a long time. As we progress with this distribution, you can contribute to it by following our SourceForge page, in which you can go to by clicking here.

And yes, we do have a SourceForge page for Project PIOS! You can look at Project PIOS screenshots, and in the future, we’ll have a dedicated forum and a wiki for Project PIOS!

Updates to Project PIOS will be posted on this blog, on the Project PIOS website, and on Backstage & Newsletter, so you can get up-to-date news on our new operating system!
