Yellow Dog Linux, also YDL, is a free and open source operating system for Power Architecture computers. Developed by Fixstars (formerly known as Terra Soft), Yellow Dog Linux was first released in 1999 for the Apple Macintosh. The most recent version, version 6.2, was released on 29 June 2009.

Distribution
Yellow Dog Linux is sold by Fixstars and also markets Sony PlayStation 3 consoles, IBM workstations, and servers with Yellow Dog Linux pre-installed. As is the case with most other Linux distribution vendors, a portion of the revenue from the sale of these boxed distributions goes toward development of the Linux operating system and applications, the results of which are made available as source code under various free and open source licenses.

Yellow Dog Linux is also the pre-installed operating system in Sony's Cell-based high performance computing node, Zego.
