Future is open

We believe in freedom. We want people to have the freedom of choice, be it about code, content or personal privacy. We dare to dream about a future where users, developers and companies alike can define their own mobile experiences without limitations.

Based on open source and built like a classic Linux distribution, Sailfish OS is truly a people powered platform. You can be a Sailfish OS developer, seasoned user or the new kid on the block and just getting started – everyone is invited to join the Sailfish family. DIT – doing it together is our motto.

Sailfish OS has currently tens of thousands of users around the world. Through current licensing partnerships including India’s largest smartphone vendor Intex Technologies, Turing Robotics, Open Mobile Platform, and community’s Fairphone 2 effort, as well as other upcoming partnerships, the user base is expected to grow significantly in the near future.
