Making hardware that’s open source allows anyone to learn from the Thelio design, adapt it, improve it, and make derivative works inspired by what we've created. Thelio desktops and Thelio Io are all OSHWA-certified open source hardware licensed under GPL v3 and CC-BY-SA, with design files hosted on GitHub. We hope Thelio can be a spark for open source hardware just as GNU and Linux were the sparks that forever changed the way software was developed and shared nearly three decades ago.
System76 supports every user’s right to repair. In fact, the chassis is designed for it. When you buy a Thelio from us, it’s yours to customize, upgrade, tinker, and replace parts at will. We back this promise with lifetime support for your product and a 30-day money back guarantee.
