We have no intention on providing any kernels outside of those officially provided by the Linux Foundation.

Hey Josh. Maybe I’m incorrect but i don’t think liquorix has non Linux foundation components. It’s mostly configuration tweaks that enable alternative schedulers and optimized parameters for the user facing desktops (rather than the server-biased default kernel config). My understanding is that all of the code is actually in the Linux Kernel but switched off by default.

Anyways, been testing it on other distos, and there is a night and day change in UI fluidity and feel of the desktop. In some sense it might be worth stealing some of the tunable settings for the default Solus kernel as a minimum

Understanding of the development philosophy you guys have, just wanted to chime in in case there was a misunderstanding about what Liquorix is (myself included)

@rapatel0 IIRC the Liquorix Kernel includes some tweaks but also includes the unofficial MuQSS scheduler patch from Con Kolivas.
