Linux Search

This custom search only searches dedicated Linux websites:

If the search box isn't displaying correctly here, it's a temporary problem. See Linux Search in the meantime.

Google used to have a custom search for Linux (aka GNU/Linux) at google.com/linux but they discontinued it on the basis that it's normally enough to add linux as a search term. However, this custom search is useful:

  • if you want to avoid spammy search results
  • when searching for a rarely used term such as a model number - such searches often give hits which mention merely Linux in a sidebar or footer etc, but where the page itself is are not actually about Linux.

By narrowing the search down to only Linux-specific websites, these problems are avoided.
