Happy 918 Day!

Adélie Software has a long and rich history in the Tulsa community, and today is our community’s annual 918 Day celebration!

The Adélie Linux project was started here just about five years ago, when A. Wilcox and Elizabeth Myers were discussing different Linux distributions. They decided to start a few projects aimed at improving the Linux ecosystem on the whole, and what became Adélie was born.

Tulsa has been a wonderful place to run a technology startup. We love holding meetings at Kilkenny’s (and can’t wait to go back after the pandemic!), and relaxing after a long day of programming by taking a walk through LaFortune Park.

However, the true hidden gems – what we would like to highlight this 918 Day – are our local technology shops. We are so lucky to be surrounded by places we can go to buy any sort of hardware we need. Wholesale Computer Supply, OARSpc, RK Computers, Same Day Computer, MegaWatts, Experimac, DISC Surplus… these are just a few of the many names that we are proud to be regular patrons of. Their resilience through the rough times of 2020 is inspiring. They continue to provide Tulsa with the technology we need to live, work, and play digitally and safely.

On behalf of our entire team in Tulsa, we would like to express our deepest gratitude for our friends and neighbours that make this community so great. Thank you, Tulsa!
