Pisi GNU/Linux is a user-friendly GNU/Linux distribution based on the latest version of Pardus, which is based on the Pisi infrastructure and developed by the free software community. It aims to provide ease of installation, configuration, and usage for computer users, catering to their basic desktop needs.


It is a user-focused GNU/Linux distribution. It aims to provide users with as much freedom as possible to experience Linux through graphical interfaces. It aims to enhance inherited designs, promote the development of new designs, and contribute to the world of free software. It does not intend to release a server or enterprise version. Currently, it only supports the x86-64 architecture. It follows a versioning scheme with major releases numbered as 1, 2, 3, and minor releases as 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc. It provides up-to-date and stable applications.


Under the Pardus design framework led by TÜBİTAK, many designs that were discontinued when Pardus transitioned to Debian base in 2013 are being continued and developed within the scope of Pisi Linux.

Additionally, during shutdown, MÜDÜR is responsible for stopping services and safely unmounting file systems.
