An OS for Everypony!
PonyOS is a hobby Unix-like operating system, designed for ponies like you!
No! PonyOS uses its own kernel, built from scratch.
PonyOS 8.0 now has twice the ponies!
The CD should boot in QEMU, VirtualBox, VMWare, or even on real hardware if you're a brave pony!
For all VMs, 1GB of RAM is recommended. When using VirtualBox, select "Other/Unknown 64-bit" for the OS type. For VMware, use a 64-bit guest configuration. For QEMU,
qemu-system-x86_64 -smp 4 -m 1G -enable-kvm -soundhw ac97 -cdrom ponyos.iso should suffice.
The CD will automatically log in the user

To build PonyOS from scratch, we recommend using the upstream pre-assembled Docker build image.
PonyOS is developed through Github. You can find our repository at klange/ponyos.
Yes! PonyOS works on many different machines. Hardware driver support is limited, though, so for the best PonyOS experience you should use one of the supported virtual machines listed above. If you're feeling brave, you'll need a PS/2 keyboard and mouse (or legacy compatibility support in your motherboard).
Eight years later and people still don't believe us! PonyOS is not a Linux distribution - it's also not a BSD, or a Hurd, or a Minix, or a Solaris!
PonyOS 8.0 does not include a compiler on the CD, as it significantly increases the size of the disk image. You can use the package manager to install the
build-essential package and get a full GCC toolchain.
Kuroko, a dynamic programming language with familiar syntax, is included on the live images.
Probably, but see "Does PonyOS work on real hardware?" above. Directly copying the ISO to a USB stick should work (eg., using
You can drag them by their title bars or hold
Alt and then click and drag anywhere.
In VirtualBox and VMware the display should automatically resize to fit the host window. For QEMU, use the
Yes! PonyOS 8.0's new kernel features an improved network stack.
At the moment, PonyOS is only offered as a live CD with no installation option, for your safety.
No. Please use the latest live CD of PonyOS 8.0. PonyOS 8.0 is not backwards compatible with previous 32-bit PonyOSes.
The Equestria font can be disabled from the bootloader menu.
