[[Funtoo Linux]] is a Linux-based operating system created by [[user:Drobbins|Daniel Robbins]], the creator and former Chief Architect of Gentoo Linux. Funtoo Linux is a Free software, or "Open Source" operating system. All distribution source code is freely available, and it can be used and distributed free of charge.
+
We encourage you to '''[[Funtoo Linux Installation|install Funtoo Linux]]''', and get involved in our user community. Get to know fellow Funtoo Linux users on our '''[http://forums.funtoo.org forums]'''. If you have any improvements or find any bugs in Funtoo Linux, you are strongly encouraged to report them on our '''[http://bugs.funtoo.org bug tracker]'''. We take all bugs seriously, and all work performed on Funtoo Linux is tracked on our bug tracker, for purposes of transparency.
  
Who develops and improves Funtoo Linux? '''You do.''' We are a completely open meta-distribution that is run by our users and a small group of support staff. Our development centers around the needs of our users. Any user can contribute code and help improve Funtoo Linux functionality on our [http://bugs.funtoo.org bug tracker].  
+
Funtoo Linux has a very active [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IRC IRC] community on Freenode, in the <code>#funtoo</code> channel, and you are encouraged to hang out online with us.

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.  
+
Funtoo Linux packages are installed from source code, automatically, thanks to the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portage_(software) Portage ports system], inspired by the FreeBSD ports system, but written in Python and with full advanced package management functionality. 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.
  
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.  
+
We use [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Git_(software) Git] for all our development, and we also use Git to deliver our ports tree to you.
  
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.
+
In contrast to Gentoo Linux, 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.

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.
