Funtoo is a Linux-based operating system that is an advanced variant of Gentoo Linux, led by 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 your computing hardware.
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 Portage ports system, inspired by the FreeBSD ports system, written in Python and with full advanced package management functionality. Funtoo uses Git for development, and ports tree delivery.
Benefits for desktops: leaner, optimized, faster system. Additional benefits for servers: enable only what you actually need to reduce attack surface, thus improving security.
We offer a number of innovations, including our extensive use of git, our profile system, boot-update boot management tool, our incredibly flexible template-based networking scripts, Metro distribution build system, support of Debian, RHEL and other kernels, enhanced Python support, Portage mini-manifests, user-centric distribution model, and a large number of community infrastructure improvements.
Official Funtoo Projects include:
- Keychain, an SSH/GPG agent front-end.
- Metro, automated Funtoo build engine.
- Learn Linux! Awk, Bash, Sed and more.
Funtoo supports multiple web server stack arrangements to get any content you want published in any way you want with high performance web hosting direct from the distribution.
