Licensing & FAQ

Bliss OS inherits the same GNU Public licensing that Android uses for most of the components, while other components like Google Apps, Native-Bridge, and some of the features would require additional licensing. Bliss OS does however offer development contracts in order to help meet the specific needs of our customers.

Q: Is Bliss OS suitable for individuals?

A: Yes, Bliss OS is designed to be used as a daily replacement for Windows or Linux and work is consistently being done to improve the User Experience.

Q: Does Bliss OS include proprietary software?

A: Yes and No. Our main GMS/Gapps releases include proprietary software, and are intended for individuals, while we also offer bare-bones AOSP builds with no proprietary software included, and FOSS builds, with only Native-Bridge included.

Q: Is Bliss OS suitable for companies?

A: Yes, but not all builds. We produce standard (bare-bones) AOSP builds with basic x86/x86_64 PC hardware support, and no proprietary software included, and those are available to test with from our website. If your company requires Google Apps or ARM/ARM64 Native-Bridge, please contact us to discuss licensing options.

Q: Can my company use Bliss OS as-is?

A: No. the public builds that we make available online are not fit for corporate consumption or meant to be included in products. Companies must contact us if they would like to use our projects in their commercial purposes, and either form an agreement on a development contract to tailor things to their needs, or sponsor our project with the recommended $500/mo for company use.

Q: Can my company use the Bare-Bones AOSP builds as-is?

A: Yes, while those builds are very basic, they do include much of what would be needed to base a product off of. If you are a startup or a company making under $100,000.00 USD annually, you are eligible to use these builds at no cost. Otherwise, we recommend you contact us and setup a development contract for branding, optimization and specific needs, or sponsor our project with at least $500/mo for company wide use.

Q: Does my company have to release any changes made to the collective source code of Bliss OS?

A: This all depends on where the changes in the source were made, as each repo in the project retains a different OSS License, there are different requirements per repo. If you are unsure if your company needs to release the source for any of the changes made, please feel free to contact us.
