New Linux Distro is OUT!

Metis Linux

Bloat Less

Turbo Fast


Started as a hobby project by a 17 y/o Nepalese kiddo Nabeen Tiwaree with his fellow friends Yogesh Lamichhane and Safal Piya.


Metis Linux Intro

Metis Linux is an artix based super fast, lightweight,simple and flexible distribution that uses runit as an init system [ simply no systemD ] & super tiny scripts to install & manage the whole operating system.

Metis Linux aims at providing a stunning experience to new the tiling window manager world with sane configs and keybinds that are easy and memorable. 


Suckless's simple packages are used wherever possible. Using DWM with only the absolute required packages makes the operating system super minimalistic and only uses about 250 MBs of memory at boot that makes the OS super productive.

Feature #1

Fast and lightweight


If anything can be simple, let's just simplify it. Our implementations should be written from shell and C/C++, and we love usable and simple package implementations, which are all freely available in Github.

Feature #2

Simple and Free


Stated by the unix philosophy, Make each program do one thing well, systemd includes many features that we never use; making the init system complicated. So RunIt is our init system of choice.

Feature #3



We want our project can be easily portable to other operating systems.

Feature #4

POSIX compatible


– Text Editor: nvim (Neo-VIM) – Window Manager: DWM (Dynamic Window Manager) – Terminal: ST (suckless terminal or simple termimnal) – Screenshot utility: Scrot – Bar: SlStatu – Application Launcher: Dmenu – brillo: Backlight (brightness) controller – Pulseaudio: Audio Server for linux (will switch to pipewire on next release) – JetBrains Mono Nerd Font – Firefox as default browser

Default Packages

Metis Linux ships with following packages by default.
