LinuxTLE[1] (ลินุกซ์ทะเล, /ˈlɪnəkstəl/) is a discontinued Thai Linux distribution based on Ubuntu and developed by the Thailand National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC).

TLE stands for Thai Language Extension, as it was originally a Thai extension for Red Hat Linux.[citation needed] The pronunciation "talay" is a homophone of the Thai word ทะเล (the sea).
