Policies and Notices

We at Enchantment OS thoughtfully configure Linux operating systems and Open-Source software applications for free distribution and for custom installation on quality storage devices and third party computer systems. They are intended to lower the barriers for consumers to try, evaluate and use Linux and Free/Open-Source applications. The value added by Enchantment OS is in the evaluation, selection, integration and documentation of software and hardware components that together provide quality Linux solutions for non-technical consumers.

If hardware or storage devices with your Enchantment OS product are defective within 30 days after purchase, please contact us for return instructions for replacement or repair. Beyond 30 days, the hardware manufacturer's warranty applies.

If you are not happy with how this software runs on your PC or storage device, we will reload your system or device with an updated version of Enchantment OS Linux, or with another Linux distribution of your choice, or help you select alternative software apps free of charge for one year after purchase.

Linux software is currently resistant more resistant to virus, spyware and malware infection than some propriety operating systems and software. At this time, antivirus software is not commonly used or available for Linux PC systems. I have not found it necessary for my personal systems. However, no computer is immune from attack, and protective measures may be necessary in the future, as Linux PC systems become more popular. There is no warranty against future virus or malware infection for this system or software.
