Our organizational structure consists of BDFL and a small number of support staff, as well as members of our user community who are involved in improving Funtoo Linux. Developement efforts are driven by the BDFL as well as our users, and efforts are under way to implement various mechanisms to allow supporters of Funtoo Linux to chart the future direction of the project.

Funtoo Linux packages are installed from source code, automatically, thanks to the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portage_(software) Portage ports system.] Funtoo Linux has its own distinct ports tree (repository of packages), which is based on Gentoo's. Every several hours, the Funtoo Linux Portage tree is updated using an automated merge process, to include the latest changes from Gentoo Linux, Funtoo Linux developers and contributors, as well as other independent developers.

=== Funtoo Containers ===
+
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. Funtoo Linux 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.
  
We want to give our supporters the opportunity to use Funtoo Linux online, as a virtual container. Financial supporters of the project are able to request a Funtoo Linux virtual container, based upon their level of support:
+
''Benefits for desktops'': leaner, optimized, faster system. ''Additional benefits for servers'': enable only what you actually need to reduce attack surface, thus improving security.
  
* $10/mo : '''3GB''' RAM, '''4''' CPU threads, 50GB disk

Getting Started

We encourage you to install Funtoo Linux, and get involved in our user community. Get to know fellow Funtoo Linux users on our forums. If you have any improvements or find any bugs in Funtoo Linux, you are strongly encouraged to report them on our bug tracker. We take all bugs seriously, and all work performed on Funtoo Linux is tracked on our bug tracker, for purposes of transparency.

Funtoo Linux has a very active IRC community on Freenode, in the #funtoo channel, and you are encouraged to hang out online with us.

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. Funtoo Linux 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.

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 use Git for all our development, and we also use Git to deliver our ports tree to you.

In contrast to Gentoo Linux, 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.
