Arkos Was a Linux distribution based is Arch Linux , designed Primarily for hosting websites and services are cheap ARM -based Devices Such As Raspberry Pi , cubieboard 2 Cubietruck gold BEAGLEBONE Black , with plan to expand to other platforms Such As x86. [2] [3] [4] [5]

Jacob Cook, arkOS ‘primary developer, originally conceived the idea of ​​arkOS after realizing the extensive amount of time it required to set up its own self-hosted services. He explained it by saying: “I had a good deal of experience with Linux and system administration, but it still took a huge amount of time and research to get the services I wanted to set up, and secured properly.” [6] Cooked to reduce dependence from cloud services and make data collection harder. [7]

As of March 2014, arkOS is in its development stages. The creator of arkOS has also set up CitizenWeb organization, [8] which is responsible for the development of the operating system. CitizenWeb also solicited money through a successful crowdsourcing campaign to finish the platform. [9]

In April 2017 arkOS has been discontinued, [10] with the lack of resources as the main reason. [11] The source code is available on GitHub .
