Funtoo Linux is also a ''meta''-distribution, which means that it is built automatically from source code and is customized with the functionality that ''you'' want it to have, and ''without'' the unnecessary features and "bloat" that you want to avoid.

In addition, a Funtoo Linux system is [[Download|optimized for your CPU]], and we offer optimized versions for ''Intel Core i7'', ''Intel Atom'', ''AMD Opteron'', and other processors and architectures.

These combination of factors work together to create an extremely high-performance and flexible computing platform -- a platform where ''you'' are in control, and your system performs optimally. We believe that Funtoo Linux is the most ideal expression of how operating system technology "should" work, and we continually strive to make it better.
+
 
+
== The Gentoo Ecosystem ==
+
 
+
We are committed to maintaining high-levels of compatibility and collaboration with the Gentoo Linux project, and challenge ourselves to innovate while providing new approaches that can be easily leveraged by the Gentoo Community. We appreciate the support we receive from members of the Gentoo Community and strive to contribute back to the larger [[Gentoo Ecosystem]].
+
 
+
== Ultimate Flexibility for Developers ==
+
 
+
Does your Linux distribution allow multiple versions of <tt>php</tt>, <tt>[[python]]</tt> or <tt>ruby</tt> installed happily alongside each other? Funtoo Linux does. Are you tired of hand-building key packages from source to configure them exactly the way you want? Funtoo Linux allows you to tweak the build-time features of packages using handy things called USE variables. Other distributions are forced to either leave stuff out that you want, or include stuff you don't want.
+
 
+
== Virtualization ==
+
 
+
We support the [[OpenVZ]] project and build up-to-date Funtoo Linux OpenVZ containers that you can [[Download|download]]. Also see [[VagrantUp]] for a nice way to deploy VirtualBox-based Funtoo Linux systems. [[Metro]], our automated distro build tool, is capable of building OpenVZ, Linux VServer and [[Linux Containers]] (LXC) images. Funtoo Linux also makes an excellent virtualization host system for [[Xen]].
+
 
+
== Features ==
+
 
+
[[Funtoo Linux]] features native [[wikipedia:UTF-8|UTF-8]] support enabled by default, a [[wikipedia:Git (software)|git]]-based, [[Portage Tree|distributed Portage Tree]] and funtoo overlay, an enhanced [[Portage]] with more compact mini-manifest tree, automated imports of new [http://www.gentoo.org Gentoo] changes every 12 hours, [[GUID Booting Guide|GPT/GUID boot support]] and [[Boot-Update|streamlined boot configuration]], [[Funtoo Linux Networking|enhanced network configuration]], up-to-date [http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/funtoo/funtoo-stable/ stable] and [http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/funtoo/funtoo-current/ current] Funtoo [[Stage Tarball|stages]], all built using Funtoo's [[Metro]] build tool. We also offer Ubuntu Server, Debian, RHEL and Fedora-based [[Funtoo Linux Kernels|kernels]].

Funtoo is currently supported on the following processor families :
