Private. Convenient.

A Seattle based OS you can trust.


Fedora Based    

Thanks to a stable base of Fedora, risiOS is able to deliver on the latest cutting-edge features without breaking things mid-release cycle. Some of the modern features risiOS inherits from Fedora include BTRFS, Wayland (even on NVIDIA hardware), Pipewire, and much more. 


Thanks to GNOME, risiOS ships a modern and fluid DE with extendability through extensions. GNOME also provides a modern suite of apps with a consistent UI and design language.


risiOS ships a modified version of ZSH with features such as syntax highlighting, auto suggestions, and more, although to keep ZSH light we do not ship a plugin manager or framework. ZSH itself is faster than bash, and provides many bonus features like plugin support.

Ready For The Web  

Make your favorite web apps feel native using our fork of Linux Mint’s web app manager. 

‌This fork contains a store with loads of preset web apps to choose from in order to
‌let you discover new web apps and conveniently add them. 

‌Web apps from the store also have security measures to prevent users from being redirected to malicious websites
‌just in case a web apps gets hacked, domain sniped, or becomes malicious.

setup your computer with ease.

risiWelcome helps first time users install drivers and codecs, setup FlatHub and RPMFusion, and find resources related to risiOS. We also have "quick setup" scripts that help you quickly install certain applications you may need for certain tasks.

‌make your computer yours.

Use risiTweaks to change themes and layout settings, manage GNOME Extensions to make risiOS yours, manage risiScript installers, and enable experimental features from within risiOS.

‌making scripts friendly.

risiScript allows us to generate a GUI wizard for bash/shell scripts and make things like installing third-party apps and system configuration easy.
