    China's first open source OS that is based on Linux. It's all over the news in China media. China claims it's their first self developed open source OS. BUT it's a lie. I been using Deepin Linux for a couple of years now and that is Open Source. Anyways, the reason OpenKylin is cool because it's supported by China's entire IT industry whereas Deepin is more like one private company's endeavors.

    BTW, I'm not sure what the official web page is, but I think it's this one:

    https://www.openkylin.top/index-en.html

    And here is the NEWs article where I first learned about Open Kylin:

    I think my Deepin installation going to be very handy. The install guide of OpenKylin is all in Chinese. This can easily be translated to ENG via Deepin Browser (or MS Edge translate function)...

    Is it a genuine GNU/Linux (Licensing status)?


    Does it have any pedigree, or is it built from scratch?

    Cannot find it on 'Distrowatch'!

    It uses the Linux kernel, but I think everything else is built from scratch. I'm not aware of any Linux distro that works on all x86 ARM and RISC-V architectures. OpenKylin can work on all three system types so it has that novelty factor.

    BTW, I never pay attention to Distrowatch. Even with Deepin, I usually go directly to their website to download the ISO. I think the official website for OpenKylin is this one (thank God they made a dedicated ENG version of the site):
