Unity Linux is a rolling release Linux distribution and is meant to be a base on which other distributions can build. Unity Linux is available as a 64-bit Live CD that can be installed and is free software. Unity Linux is the first Linux distribution built with Musl that uses RPM and YUM for its package management and OpenRC for its Init system.
The primary goals of Unity Linux are:
- Providing core packages for other distributions.
- Providing tools to make it easy to remaster.
- Ensuring interoperability between packages.
- Providing a reliable platform for remaster.
Unity Linux core system is made up of one CD that tries to provide a small base on which others can build. Because the target audience of Unity Linux is not end-users, nothing else is included. For example, server-centric applications and development tools are not part of the core system.
Even though many applications are not included in the core distribution, the system can be installed piecemeal using rpm.
There was a hiatus in development as the project fell silent. However, an early developer and supporter of Unity has taken over the project. Developer Test "live" ISOs have been created.
