This page contains only irrelevant and unhelpful information and statistics about Alpine Linux. If you are going to prepare a talk about Alpine Linux, perhaps some information mentioned here can be used for the intro.

The first release

The name

"Alpine" originally stood for A Linux Powered Integrated Network Engine. The idea was that the distribution would be focused on networking, and be a tiny "engine" or framework, which larger systems could be built upon. Today, "Alpine" is nothing more than a name.

Who is working on Alpine Linux?
