Funtoo Linux is a Linux-based operating system that is a variant of Gentoo Linux, led by Daniel Robbins, the creator and former Chief Architect of Gentoo Linux, who serves as benevolent dictator for life (BDFL) of the project. Project priorities include focusing on developing production-ready technology, finding creative solutions to problems, and most importantly, creating a fun, user-centric community for all.

Distinctives

Funtoo Linux packages are installed from source code, automatically, thanks to the 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.

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.
