Dragora GNU/Linux-Libre is an Argentine Linux distribution[4] written from scratch[5] sharing some similarities with Slackware. It has a simple packaging system that allows installing, removing, upgrading and creating packages, although the system may be challenging to new users.[6] As it only packages free software and uses the Linux-libre kernel, the Free Software Foundation endorses Dragora.[7] Dragora is considered to be based on the "Keep it simple, stupid" (KISS) principle, believed by the authors to be a strength.[8] Dragora can be downloaded from the web site or bought on CD.[9][10]

Since Dragora 2 the init system Runit is used.[11]
