I’d like to inform you about my new Linux distribution called KISS.
Independent (not based on anything else).
Source based (like gentoo or crux).
Busybox init (busybox includes runit style services, sysvinit style services or plain shell scripts)
Packages compile without Telemetry/tracking.

I’d like to draw your attention to a young and promising project called Adélie Linux. Adélie Linux is a Free, Libre operating system based on the Linux kernel. Their goals of full POSIX® compliance, built on musl compatibility with a wide variety of computers, and ease of use without sacrificing features set them apart from most other Linux distributions. Sysvinit, openrc, and S6 are available to customize your installation to specific needs. Adélie Linux is also independent and built from the ground up, not based on major distributions (Arch, Debian), or Gentoo, or Alpine, as some will immaturely conclude.
Edit Dec 22 2018 – Adelie 1.0-beta2 is now available and possibly the last step before the first stable Adelie 1 is released. https://www.adelielinux.org/announcements/1.0-BETA2.html
After our previous week’s test of Alpine linux and the impression of its simplicity and high speed, we decided to give a group test on the Void linux with musl. We used the LXDE edition of the installation image and did a trial run on VirtualBox. It was a first shot try and success. We then started modifying and installing various packages to see if “any” would have any problems running on musl instead of glibc. Note that the musl repositories are specific to musl and separate, as far as we can tell, from the glibc repositories. Continue reading
