Hawaii is a Wayland[1][2] and Qt Quick[3]-based desktop environment with few dependencies aiming at desktop and mobile convergence. It was primarily used by Maui, a Linux distribution, before becoming independently known as Hawaii OS.

Hawaii adopted the Simple Desktop Display Manager.

The Hawaii Desktop Environment was also adopted by RebeccaBlackOS, a Linux "live" distribution intended to serve as a technology preview.[4]
