Comments: If you have installed and used Gentoo, and want to try Lunux, you will be wading in familiar waters. You can customize a Lunar system to your hearts content. According to information from the Lunar site, Lunar Linux “makes customization a breeze — you choose the compile options before a module is built, and install a lean and uncluttered system that has exactly what you need. Nothing more, or less.”
Sounds good, but that entails some effort on your part, and like Gentoo Linux, Lunar documentations are just as good. So if you bored with one-size-fits-all distros, and want an operating system tailore-made for you and your machine. click the download link below and the doc link after it and have some fun.
