We're Built on Open Source
The Avouch Linux is built upon a strong foundation of Free & Open Source software. Without projects such as these, elementary OS would not exist.
Security & Privacy
By being Open Source, Avouch OS can benefit from superior security and privacy over closed source software. When the source code is available to audit, anyone in the community, whether a security researcher, a concerned user, or an OEM shipping the OS on their hardware, can ensure the software is secure and not collecting or leaking personal information.
Better for Developers
If your app could benefit from a system API or feature that’s not yet available, you can help write that feature into the OS. Similarly, you might be curious as to how a feature or design pattern in elementary OS was made. Instead of guessing or trying to reimplement it on your own, you can just look at the underlying source code for a definitive answer.
We Support Open Source Projects
Avouch makes a point to send funds back to the projects we rely on. When you donate a copy of Avouch Linux, you're also supporting great projects like these.
