Why should I buy at TUXEDO Computers?
"Well, I can install Linux on any PC or notebook by myself!"
That's right! But on standard hardware Linux distributions run unoptimized with only a rudimentary range of functions, which requires a lot of adaptation work, annoying waiting for updates and "tinkering around".
We build tailor-made Linux hardware that will ideally suit your needs!

Why Linux? And what exactly is it?
Linux is an Open Source - operating system, which was developed and initiated in 1991/92 by the Finnish programmer Linus Torvalds, who still plays a coordinating role in the further development.
In contrast to other operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows or Apple's Mac OS, Linux does not exist in the form of a single operating system, but rather in the form of various spin-offs, so-called distributions, which are all based on the same Linux operating system kernel.
Among the best known Linux distributions are "Ubuntu" and "openSUSE". With TUXEDO_OS we also offer you our own Ubuntu-based, but further developed and optimized Linux distribution.
The Linux kernel is the operating system core and thus the central component and basis of all Linux operating systems (distributions).
The kernel defines the basic process and data organization, which all software components of the operating system base on.
In the Linux world there are hundreds of so-called distributions. These are Linux operating systems, which are all based on the same Linux kernel, but differ significantly in visual appearance (desktop environments) and general philosophy.
This is both a curse and a blessing: While users have a free choice for their individual taste, especially beginners are overwhelmed by this flood of information. An overview of the various Linux distributions can be found at Distrowatch.
Our support team will be happy to advise you in your search for the Linux operating system perfectly suited to your needs.
The desktop environment represents the graphical user interface and is also available in several variations, which differ in features and visual appearance.
Some of the most popular desktop environments are KDE, Gnome, Mate, Cinnamon, Xfce, Budgie and many more. Our TUXEDO distribution TUXEDO_OS is based on the Budgie desktop.
Why should I switch to Linux?
Linux is based on the philosophy of 'Open Source', collaborative development and maximum transparency.
Free to use
The vast majority of Linux distributions are 100% free and can be used without restrictions.
High privacy & security standards
Freely viewable source code creates transparency and a control instance by the community for more security and quality.
Nearly free customizability
With hundreds of distributions and design themes, you have a free choice and a multitude of customization options.
Hardly any viruses
Linux puts a stronger focus on security and stability. Due to a better security / rights concept Linux is much less vulnerable to viruses and trojans.
Lower hardware requirements
Linux has significantly lower system requirements and is therefore also well suited for weaker hardware.
