== Why [http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=funtoo Funtoo]? ==
+
Funtoo Linux is a rolling-release Linux meta-distribution for x86 and ARM systems. It uses Portage as a package manager, and is run by Daniel Robbins, creator of Gentoo Linux. It is a continuation of Daniel's work on Gentoo Linux.  Funtoo Linux is committed to software freedom, independence, and a user-centric model of software development, where our users help define the future direction of the project.
Funtoo is a Linux-based operating system that is an advanced variant of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gentoo_Linux Gentoo Linux], led by [[User:Drobbins|Daniel Robbins]] (the creator and former Chief Architect of Gentoo) who serves as benevolent dictator for life (BDFL) of the project. ''Funtoo Linux is optimized for the best possible performance on [[Subarches|your computing hardware]].  
+
=== Distinctives ===
+
  
Funtoo Linux is a meta-distribution, which means it is built fully automatically with the functionality and optimizations that ''you'' want, not what some distro maintainer thought was best for you. Packages are installed directly from source code, thanks to the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portage_(software) Portage ports system], inspired by the FreeBSD ports system, written in Python and with full advanced package management functionality.  Funtoo uses [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Git_(software) Git] for development, and ports tree delivery.
+
Our goal is to provide a best-of-breed Gentoo-based meta-distribution that is ideal for desktop and servers, and to progressively improve our core technology in thoughtful and innovative ways, while respecting Gentoo design principles, and the history of Unix and Linux.
  
''Benefits for desktops'': leaner, optimized, faster system. ''Additional benefits for servers'': enable only what you actually need to reduce attack surface, thus improving security.
+
Funtoo Linux provides [[Subarches|optimized builds]] for your specific hardware to ensure the best possible performance, and offers the following features:
 +
* A completely systemd-free system, including GNOME 3.14 without systemd.
 +
* A new [[Funtoo 1.0 Profile|profile system]] to simplify system configuration.
 +
* Improved ease of install with pre-built Debian kernel provided in our install image.
 +
* A new system configuration tool, [News:Better_Experiences:_Ego_and_Vim ego].
 +
* An advanced build and quality assurance tool called [[Metro]], providing optimized install images and enhanced real-world testing.
 +
* The use of git as a default mechanism for getting updated ebuilds (build scripts) to you.
 +
* [[Funtoo Linux Networking|Modular networking scripts]] to simplify creating sophisticated server network configurations.
 +
* Enhanced Python support from the Progress overlay, and inclusion of other popular packages from the Gentoo ecosystem.
  
We offer a number of innovations, including our extensive use of git, [[Funtoo 1.0 Profile|our profile system]], [[Package:Boot-Update|boot-update]] boot management tool, our incredibly flexible [[Funtoo Linux Networking|template-based networking scripts]], [[Metro Quick Start Tutorial|Metro]] distribution build system, support of Debian, RHEL and other kernels, [[Creating_Python-related_Ebuilds|enhanced Python support]], Portage mini-manifests, user-centric distribution model, and a large number of community infrastructure improvements.
