'''Macaroni Linux OS''' is a young distribution born under the Funtoo Linux umbrella that is now independent and is developed and evolved primarily by Daniele Rondina (ex Sabayon Linux developer) aka geaaru.
The name Macaroni is related to the penguin specie found from the Sub-antarctic to the Antarctic Peninsula. It bears a distinctive yellow crest.
Macaroni OS uses the [https://github.com/geaaru/luet/#major-differences-between-upstream-release luet] fork as PMS that is under heavy development.
The official Macaroni portal is [https://www.macaronios.org/ here].
=== Releases ===
On Macaroni there are different releases with different targets.
|The core release based on OpenRC/SysVinit Funtoo system for Server and Desktop.
|The next release based on OpenRC/SysVinit Funtoo oriented for Containers.
|A Funtoo SystemD release. The idea is to use it only for Server target and as experimental base rootfs where we will develop an alternative tool that will replace SystemD probably written in Golang but that will be compatible with part of SystemD files. In this moment, this release has only Container based targets and Server services.
=== Architecture ===
At the moment the only supported architecture is <code>x86_64bit</code>. When we have completed the rewrite of our build tool we will start the ARM/ARM64 integration.
=== Init System ===
OpenRC is the official init system of Macaroni but it also supports SystemD for containers until it is replaced with a new init process implementation that supply similar features (cgroup, coredump handler, sandboxing, etc.).
=== Kernel ===
In Macaroni Linux at the moment we support both LTS and stable release based on vanilla kernels.
The binaries packages of the kernels are built separately to be used for all releases and are available on [https://github.com/funtoo/macaroni-commons/tree/master/packages/kernels macaroni-commons] repository.
Only the extra drivers are built over the specific release (for example, nvidia drivers, virtualbox, etc.).
=== Desktop Environments ===
Multiple desktop environments will be supported soon in Macaroni Linux, with the most well-supported of these being '''GNOME''' at the moment.
