thunix offers Secure Shell (SSH) accounts, Web Hosting, Email Accounts, and many other things to people free of charge. It was founded by hexhaxtron in the Summer of 2017 as a hobby project. The hardware is very powerful and is running Debian 9.0 Stretch 64-bit. We aim to provide the best service possible with the most wide variety of features. However we cannot guarantee speed, security, uptime, reliability, availability or quality of service, and we cannot offer any warranty. Nevertheless you hardly will find another service as good as thunix. Have fun with it!
thunix tries to adhere to the values and philosophy of the Hacker Ethic whenever possible. The hacker ethics and beliefs as described by Levy are:
- Access to computers - and anything which might teach you something about the way the world works - should be unlimited and total. Always yield to the Hands-On Imperative!
- All information should be free
- Mistrust authority - promote decentralization
- Hackers should be judged by their hacking, not criteria such as degrees, age, race, sex, or position
- You can create art and beauty on a computer
- Computers can change your life for the better
thunix will never use proprietary software but users can do that if they wish. This is something they should avoid however.
