PixelOS is an AOSP based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies (launcher, wallpapers, themed icons, google sans fonts, Monet color based system wide theming, boot animation), a fork of OG Pixel Experience with improvements on the top of it. Huge respect to Pixel Experience team for their work, thanks to them for making this ROM possible.
In short a fully functional Pixel Experience with just the right amount of essentials.

Code:
/* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*/

One dumb question, what do you mean by this?
Requirements

If i have now MIUI, do I need to install PixelExperience then install this one? If so, can I install Lineage OS in order to be encrypted?
Thanks for the great work, highly appreciated

Anyone can help out and guide me on how to install it from scratch? coming from stock ROM, new device! Thanks in advance.
OP has this information:

1. Requirements
• Latest Global Stable Android 11 firmware for alioth. (Flash it)
From Here I think: https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/firmware/alioth/

2. Boot into bootloader and flash recovery:
PixelOS Recovery: https://sourceforge.net/projects/pixelos-releases/files/twelve/alioth/recovery/

3a. Download boot into recovery and flash the rom: https://pixelos.vercel.app/download/alioth
3b. If you cannot flash with that recovery you can try with the other one: https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=331017

I am assuming you have the bootloader unlocked here. I will do it tomorrow when the phone arrive. I hope it helps.

Wow pixel OS phone is not even cold and quite warm and
I just got this score on pixel os on geekbench that's higher than my stock muiui score the highest score I got on stock ROM was 991 and 3200 when the device was cold and had no apps installed and performance mode enabled , battery life is good I only installed yesterday so it should get even better grret you were right this ROM is brilliant and also very nippy and smooth . A bonus the adreno v611 drivers boot up and work fine no crashes in 3d mark etc from what I've tested so far :) big props to the dev :) . I have suggestion for a next update to add Dolby Atmos , tried flashing Atmos zip via twrp doesn't work in android 12 , apar from that this ROM is great excellent I was on pixel plus UI and the battery life was terrible non of adreno packages would boot apart from vk only v604 but even that crashed in apps

    PixelOS 12.1 update ready and post edited with changelogs!!

    Enjoy

    So, though I do not like MIUI... at all... I thought I had nothing to lose trying to use the batch script to load the xiaomi.eu ROM. It's a 4GB file but it didn't take too long and I extracted it, booted the phone to fastboot and ran the windows batch script. It seems to have worked, so I have a functional OS again. So I'm kind of back at the start. Can someone point me to an IDIOT proof installation How To for Pixel OS?
    1. download PixelOS -> https://pixelos.vercel.app/download/alioth
    2. download PixelOS Recovery -> https://sourceforge.net/projects/pixelos-releases/files/twelve/alioth/recovery/
    3. download Android SDK Platform-Tools -> https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools
    4. unzip platform-tools_r??.0.0-windows.zip and copy PixelOS_alioth-12.0-2022???-????.zip and boot-alioth-2022????.img inside the unzipped folder (in the same folder where adb.exe and fastboot.exe are)
    5. power off phone and power on with power + volume down (going to fastboot)
    6. plug the phone to your computer and check if the phone is recognized: run from terminal (from the platform-tools folder) "fastboot devices" (you should see a device listed)
    7. run "fastboot flash boot boot-alioth-2022????.img" and after some seconds you should get a finished message, then unplug the phone from the computer
    8. reboot the phone in recovery mode ( power + volume up )
    9. do a "Factory reset" -> "Format data/factory reset" (you will loose all data, so do a backup before)
    10. go to main screen of recovery mode and select "Apply update" -> "Apply from ADB". Plug the cable to the computer
    11. run from the terminal "adb sideload PixelOS_alioth-12.0-2022???-????.zip" and wait the process to finish (reaching 100% from terminal - and Step 1/2 / Step 2/2 on the phone). Unplug the phone from the computer
    12. go to main screen of recovery mode and select "Reboot system now"
    You will lose TWRP (but at this time TWRP is not working with Android 12 encryption, so better use PixelOS Recovery. It'll support also OTA update).
    You need to have also the bootloader unlocked.

    Edited: fixed the command "fastboot flash boot boot-alioth-2022????.img" adding the missing the "boot" option.
