We aim to provide the best service possible with a wide variety of features, and we hope you have fun with it!

  14. 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:
  15. * 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!
  16. * All information should be free
  17. * Mistrust authority - promote decentralization
  18. * Hackers should be judged by their hacking, not criteria such as degrees, age, race, sex, or position
  19. * You can create art and beauty on a computer
  20. * Computers can change your life for the better
  21. thunix will never use proprietary software but users can do that if they wish. This is something they should avoid however.
