Welcome to ~vern!

~vern is a non-commercial shared GNU/Linux system. All our servers run fully free GNU/Linux distributions. We are also aiming to become a member of the Tildeverse after we meet the requirements.


We host many services, most are available for the public.

Some are private to prevent people from abusing the services.

You can get access to these services by signing up.

Other services have restricted access, meaning only trusted members and admins can have accounts on them. You can get access to these services by being a respected and trusted member of the ~vern community.

We also host onion services for most of these. They can be found here.


You can join our community on most major free software chat programs:

We make use of bridging so you can chat with us regardless of what chat program you use

The several logo variations can be found here.

Our thoughts on the "cloud"

We do use other people's computers for some things, see them here.
