I guess. It's a webapp package system that installs on Debian.

Feels weird calling that "a version of Linux", but I guess, sort of...



YunoHost call themselves an operating system so I'm just going with the flow... 🙂 I guess they put it like that to explain why you have to install it as an OS?

Basically Yunohost is Debian plus an ecosystem of pre-installed and pre-configured softwares such as nginx, postfix, firewall, etc., plus a webadmin, diagnoser, backup system, plus our own packaging system and app catalog (plus "meta" stuff like the community)

So we tend to say that we're a (GNU/)Linux distribution yeah, it's not just about webapp packaging
