                        <h1>What Sets Us Apart</h1>
                        <p>Adélie Linux is a binary Linux distribution that focuses on the following unique goals:</p>

                        <dl>
                            <dt>Full POSIX&reg; compliance</dt>
                            <dd>One of our primary goals is to create a Linux distribution that actually passes
                            POSIX&reg; certification.  We aren't there yet, but we have made several strides&hellip;
                            <ul>
                                <li>&hellip; by using the more strict <a href="http://www.musl-libc.org/">musl libc</a>.</li>
                                <li>&hellip; by implementing <a href="https://code.foxkit.us/adelie/shimmy">strictly compliant tools where they are missing</a>.</li>
                                <li>&hellip; by <a href="https://bts.adelielinux.org/show_bug.cgi?id=POSIX">tracking our progress</a> and noting missing or non-conformant features.</li>
                            </ul>

                            <dt>Multi-architecture compatibility</dt>
                            <dd>Adélie Linux is one of the few binary distributions left that target non-x86_64
                            CPUs.  We believe that hardware belongs to you, and that you should be free to do
                            whatever you like with the hardware you own.  Currently, Adélie Linux runs on
                            PowerPC (32-bit), PowerPC (64-bit), Intel x86 (32-bit), Intel x86_64, ARMv7,
                            and 64-bit ARM.</dd>

                            <dt>Flexibility over politics</dt>
                            <dd>We ship a wide variety of packages because we believe you should be able to make
                            your own choices and decisions when using your computer.  We provide the mechanisms,
                            and you can make your own policies.</dd>

                            <dt>Installation routines that make sense</dt>
                            <dd>We are putting major effort into writing our own installer, code-named Horizon,
                            that will be just as flexible as our distro.  Our goals for Horizon include fully scripted
                            installations, a quick start mode for people new to Linux, and the ability to fully
                            customise disk layouts and packages installed for those who know exactly what they want.</dd>

                                        Growing up, my grandfather introduced me to computer programming on his PC XT.
                                        My grandmother was a computer programmer at a university, and my mother was a Perl scripter
                                        for our church's Web site in the 1990s.  I've always been around technology and my family's
                                        wonderful legacy of nerdiness lives on in me.
                                        <p>
                                        I have a passion for using technology to solve problems, and thoroughly enjoy helping others.
                                        I'm at my happiest when these combine, and I'm able to help people through software I've written.
                                        In my spare time I like to listen to EDM and jazz, play the piano and guitar, read books,
                                        and spend time with good friends and family.

                                        Growing up, a recurring theme was "making old things work again". From the
                                        derelicted Apple II in my kindergarten classroom, to old LCs and Colour Classics
                                        at my high school, the various cameras I collect, and the clocks I occasionally
                                        repair. Now, working with my fellow Adélie contributors, I can make yet more
                                        mechanisms reach the peak of their performance.
