Parabola GNU/Linux-libre is a 100% libre operating system, for which the source code of all components is freely available, modifiable, and re-distributable. The project is devoted to Free Software, Free Culture, and Init-Freedom, and is one of the few distros endorsed by the Free Software Foundation. The general project goal is to give computer users total control over their operating system, including the ability to easily migrate to and from several init-systems. To this end, Parabola provides complete source files for all software and artwork, including the internal development tools and web services.

Parabola is based directly on the ArchLinux system and its ports, to provide complete and up-to-date "rolling-release" operating systems for i686, x86_64, and armv7h CPUs. In addition to those, Parabola is also keen to support the new breed of "open-design" computers, based on aarch64, RISC-V and POWER9. The package and system management tools are simple and efficient, aligning as closely as possible to the "Arch Philosophy", without sacrificing software freedom, artistic freedom, and init freedom. By maintaining these high standards, Parabola meets and exceeds the GNU Free Software Distribution Guidelines and is endorsed by the Free Software Foundation.

Development focuses on a balance of simplicity, elegance, and code-correctness with "bleeding-edge" Free Software and a strong focus on user privacy. Parabola's lightweight and simple design principles makes it easy to extend and mold into whatever sort of system you're building.

Tips to this team account help to thank the sysadmins, developers, and artists for their volunteer work on the Parabola project. All infrastructure is donated by friends of freedom such as [1984 Hosting Company](www.1984.is).
