Impi Linux Desktops
We have expanded our desktop offerings to include “Business Class” versions for OEM and home users as well as corporate users, over and above our “Premier Class” custom distributions.
Impi Linux has an extensive partnership program, The Mile High Club, giving our partners access to the same benefits that we enjoy from our upstream partners such as Canonical, CodeWeavers, and OpenCounty.
The Mile High Club is all about sharing. We embark on shared opportunities and marketing with Mile High Club members that have met the membership requirements for small or large companies.
The Mile High Club also allows our customers a choice of service providers to support their Impi Linux deployment, allowing them to choose the right sized Mile High Club partner for their organisation.
Impi Linux is the destination of choice.
Ubuntu is undoubtedly one of the most popular Linux distributions ever. With such popularity many organisations have begun considering or adopting Ubuntu as the platform to run their IT operations. Impi Linux offers services, support and add-on products which can fast-track the adoption of Ubuntu in any organisation.
Impi Linux does not compete with Ubuntu. Rather, it optimises Ubuntu by offering services such as the Impi Linux SOS (software optimisation subscription) service. Impi also offers advanced customisation services, migration, change management, training and consulting, facilitation and services.
Our products are focused on enhancing the extensive software stack that is already built into in Ubuntu. These include Groupware, systems management, provisioning, legacy integration to back-end systems such as Windows directory services and Groupware.
If you are considering Ubuntu in your organisation, then you need to speak to Impi Linux.
We are Ubuntu for Africa. We are Ubuntu for Business.

Impi Linux was South Africa's first desktop Linux distribution. It was created in 2001 by the Gauteng Linux User Group (GLUG).
Today it develops, releases, supports and maintains the ImpiLinux operating system and is an official representative of Ubuntu and an official Ubuntu support provider in Africa.
Primarily run, developed and funded by volunteers in its early days, the Impi Linux project became a (Pty) Ltd in March 2005, a step that marked its transition from project to serious player in the local OSS market.
In August that year, Mark Shuttleworth and Impi Linux announced a deal that would see Ubuntu and Impi joining forces to tackle the SADC region.
Impi Linux is today owned by Shuttleworth's HBD Business Holdings (65%), Khuselo Investments (Pty) Ltd (10%) and several minor shareholders (5%). The remaining 20% of the shares in the entity have been earmarked for BEE, in the form of The Impi Linux BEE Share Trust, which will disburse shares to previously disadvantaged employees over time.
Impi Linux is a commercial Ubuntu representative in the region, and the ImpiLinux distribution is based on Ubuntu.
