The only operating system you'll ever need. A seamless blend of all Linux distributions, Android apps and web apps.
Apps. Millions of them.
With native support for Android apps and Linux apps from Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Arch Linux, Kali Linux, AlmaLinux, Rocky Linux and more, blendOS gives you access to tons of apps with numbers reaching into the millions.
Just double-click on an APK, DEB or RPM to install it.
Regardless of whether you're a simple, after-hours casual gamer, or one who tries to blow everyone's head off, blendOS is for you.
You can easily install Steam or Heroic (for GOG or Epic Games) from Software to be able to run popular titles such as CS:GO, Apex Legends, Elden Ring and Cyberpunk 2077 among others.
If you're a developer, you can install VS Code, Android Studio and many other IDEs from Software.
You can set up development environments through containers, the binaries and apps of which are accessible from blendOS directly.
D'you feel updates are a hassle?
Well, fear no more, for blendOS handles everything for you in the background, and your workflow is never interrupted as an atomic operating system, with your system being kept up-to-date at all times.
Speaking of interrupting your workflow, being an immutable OS, you'll never find yourself scrambling to reinstall your OS because you broke it before a meeting.
blendOS doesn't include the driver for XYZ by default. How do I install it if the system is immutable? Just run system install [pkg] in a terminal (where [pkg] is the name of the driver package in the Arch Linux repositories), and reboot.
Switch between desktop environments.
If you're an experienced Linux tinkerer, you might find the urge to try different desktop environments.
As always, we have something for you. You can switch between the 7 desktop environments we support simply by running system track in a terminal.
Are you a developer, reviewer, or [insert tedious job role] having to switch between different machines all the time, and tired of setting up everything again and again?
Well, don't you fret, for blendOS has you covered. You see, we thought of this early on and built in a tool that allows you to carry your desktop configuration and containers in a single YAML file called a "cadre", like the one below, that you can simply import with user cadre [insert name of file]:
Android Stores Install apps from some of the most popular Android stores, including Aurora Store or F-Droid. We use WayDroid behind the scenes to accomplish this.
This is a boon for Android developers, since your apps will behave just like native apps and open in a regular window, making testing much easier.
Keep in mind that Android apps do not work in VMs. If you're using an NVIDIA GPU, blendOS will detect it and automatically configure WayDroid to use software rendering.
