Why Run a Private Server?
The cloud is just someone else's computer. When you use someone else's computer, your data is not your own, you are not in control. Invasion of privacy, censorship, custodial risk, and forever rising costs plague the cloud and practically guarantee its demise.
When you run a private server, you are in control. You don't rely on others to process or store your data.
The future of personal computing is individuals, families, and businesses self-hosting open-source software on private servers accessed over anonymous networks from personal websites through custom browsers on rooted devices. And the future is now.
StartOS is a novel Linux distro with a graphical interface purpose built for self-hosting. It facilitates the entire process of discovering, downloading, installing, configuring, networking, monitoring, backing up, and generally managing almost any variety of self-hosted, open-source services with unprecedented ease.
For developers and system administrators, StartOS provides huge time savings over traditional Linux workflows. For the rest of us, and for the first time since the arrival of the Internet, it makes digital autonomy possible.
