I’m interested but not convinced. Lets come back in two years and see how this is going then.

this seems pretty interesting! though i wish they’d do a bit more about the archaic fs layout than just killing usrbin. more radical experiments would be very interesting.

"Serpent OS is a Linux distribution that DOES NOT want to be categorized as “lightweight, user-friendly, privacy-focused Linux desktop distribution”. " I wonder what the article means by this. So it will be the opposite? Or maybe it’ll embrace non-privacy focused tools to achieve cutting edge status? It does mention only being completely open source. Hmm. The SerpentOS website mentions building it for advanced users only.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
