Endless OS Redistribution Policy
We have made Endless OS available for everyone to download and install for personal use and non-commercial deployments at small scale, and we would love your help in bringing it to more people around the world! Endless OS Foundation’s goal is to deliver access to education to everyone, regardless of means and opportunity, and one powerful way of doing this is to make our software available for anyone who wants or needs it.
We want to make sure everyone gets the best experience with Endless OS, so we’ve made a simple policy around how the OS images can be used. Please read our policy, and if you have any questions, suggestions, or would like to partner with Endless, please get in touch.
Almost all of the software that makes up Endless OS is Free and Open Source Software, and the source code is available through our Developer page.
