About Amarok Linux

Amarok Linux is a free GNU/Linux project created by an independent Brazilian developer who wanted to create a ready-to-use operating system with a focus on functionality and usability for novice users and experienced content creators.

Like other Linux-based distributions, Amarok Linux is distributed for free and respects the privacy of its users by giving them full control over their hardware. The OS is fully compatible with the Debian repository and also comes with its own software repository that makes it possible to update the already installed applications and get new programs with a few clicks.

Amarok Linux is equipped with two desktops that provide a dynamic user experience, LXQt and MATE, and a set of multimedia tools like codecs, audio and video players. One of the most striking features of this operating system is its current switch to the Rolling Release concept, which allows applications and programs to be always up to date.

Jean Flávio, CEO of the Amarok Linux project, says:

ONLYOFFICE is the default office suite in Amarok Linux because of its great compatibility with MS Office files, in addition to the availability of a complete suite of applications within a single program, which makes its use much simpler, elegant and intuitive.
