Introduction

Ataraxia Linux is an independent, multi-platform, general purpose operating system, based on the Linux kernel, musl libc and busybox. Ataraxia Linux aims to be simple, compact, and safe, founded on the KISS principle to be used on desktops, servers, and embedded devices. Ataraxia Linux is available for x86, ARM, MIPS, PowerPC64 (big and little endians) and RISC-V. It uses its own package manager called "ne" which acts as a friendly wrapper for "dpkg" and is compatible with CRUX Pkgfiles. Ataraxia Linux is oriented towards advanced Linux users, who know what they're doing.
