IN BRIEF

A Gentoo-based distribution for everybody. Also available in Cinnamon, LXQt, Mate and Xfce desktop flavours. And a barebones ‘Scratch’ edition. Also Directory server and LXC/ LXD containers. See also: EndeavourOS, NixOS, Gentoo.

SPECS

Minimum CPU: 64-bit, Intel Pentium 4, AMD Athlon 64

Memory: 1GB

HDD: 8GB

Build: 64-bit only
