The system has a focus on simplicity, reliability, and security; so the tools that compose the system are selected with that in mind:
- coreutils: ecore, ccore, ubase
- libc: musl (in the future simia), tertium (for the eltanin tools)
- init: sinit, rc, perp
- package manager: ports (source-based), venus (binary)
- kernel: libre-linux
- shell: dash, rc
(look at the previous post for more details about the eltanin tools)
Other worth to note details:
- The whole system is statically linked
- Possible exceptions: dynamic languages, display servers, mesa
- Follow the standard filesytem hierarchy, with / and /usr unified
- Add xorg to ports
- Consider using Arcan as display server
- Consider using OSS4 instead of ALSA
- Why another distro?
To give a really different try in how to achieve its goals.
- Why should i use it?
If you see no value in what is proposed here, you probably should not. In doubt, try for yourself and get your own conclusions.
- Any midia?
The previous post includes midia of the tools in use.
- Is it already usable as desktop?
No, as the amount of available packages, currently, is still pretty small.
