A Hobby Operating System for Everypony!
PonyOS is a
new year-old Unix-like operating system.
No! PonyOS uses its own kernel, built from scratch.
We wanted to make sure that this year's PonyOS offered the best in pony operating system experience, so here's what we've added:
Raw disk image in a tarball (1GB) - 154MB download; MD5: b14d7ce7bc6879d38bd8a2ce74bf4900
The raw disk image can be used with QEMU. Other emulators may work but are not supported.
Extract the disk image from the tarball and then execute QEMU as follows:
qemu-system-i386 -m 1024 -hda ponyos-disk.img -vga std -enable-kvm -sdl
(If you do not have sufficient RAM on your host, you may use
-m 512 instead.)
The default user is
local and the default password for that user is also
There is also a
root user with password
To build PonyOS from scratch, please use an Ubuntu or Debian-derived host.
Clone from our git repository and then run
./build.sh. Note that we do not support building PonyOS from scratch and this process may not work. Complete builds may take anywhere from thirty minutes to many hours, depending on your hardware.
The standard build set up does not include GCC or Vim. Extra scripts are available to build these, but they take work.
PonyOS is developed through Github. You can find our repository at klange/ponyos.
Yes! PonyOS works many different machines.
Yes! PonyOS uses a fully custom kernel, which is why it doesn't support things like networking or USB drives.
Yes! PonyOS comes with a fully functioning installation of GCC!
GCC is, like, really big.
PonyOS has an annual release cycle.
