Why, you might ask?
Not everyone has the knowledge, access or ability to flash a custom operating system to an microSD card. Thus micro-os.org was born. This originally started out as a simple personal project but quickly turned into a proper service for those unable to do it themselves.
Thanks for checking out this website. My name is Bradley Taunt. I'm a designer and
hardware Raspberry Pi tinkerer based near Ottawa, Canada. I created this shop to help those that are unable to or lack knowledge about flashing their preferred operating system to a microSD card.
Ordering is processed manually.
Simply write an email to
micro-os.org with the following criteria:
You will then be sent an invoice along with a PayPal link to complete the purchase. Once the transaction is complete, the microSD card will be mailed out.
Important: before deciding on an OS, make sure that it is compatible with your specific Raspberry Pi device!
Don't see your preferred OS listed here? No problem! Just mention your desired OS in the email when you reach out and I'm sure I can get it up and running for you.
*RetroPie does not ship with any game ROMs. This is only the operating system.
As stated above, it started out as a small pet project but slowly grew into something much larger. I'm passionate about playing around with Raspberry Pi devices in general and realized some users out in the world don't have access to the available tools for flashing distros. Others may just like the general idea of an "operating system delivery service".
At this current time - no. I plan to eventually have more size options for purchase, but my current inventory consists of only high-quality 32GB cards.
Eventually I hope that can become an option. As it currently stands, I only have Raspberry Pi devices that I can test on. Until I procure other devices, I cannot in good conscience send out microSD cards without testing them on the proper machine they are intended for.
Depending on the OS selected, every order is tested on either a Raspberry Pi 4 (4GB model) or a Raspberry Pi Zero WH for quality assurance. A slip will be included with your order confirming the date and time this test was completed.
Unfortunately, no I do not. Since this is a one-man operation, I try to keep the costs as low as possible to help those unable to create these flashed microSD cards themselves. If you do happen to run into some issues upon receiving your order, please reach out for support (contact at micro-os dot org).
Absolutely! Feel free to shoot me an email (contact at micro-os dot org) and ask anything on your mind. I'm always willing to help if you're having issues with your own microSD flashing process as well!
