Linux

This course walks through the creation of a 64-bit system based on the Linux kernel. Our goal is to produce a small, sleek system well-suited for hosting containers or being employed as a virtual machine.

Because we don't need every piece of functionality under the sun, we're not going to include every piece of software you might find in a typical distro. This distribution is intended to be minimal.

Building my own Linux installation from scratch has always been one of those things I've wanted to do, but never got around to. Is this still something many people do? If so, why?

Arch is interesting. I tried it for a while made a howto document for my own use on google/docs but in the end it is just to time consuming. My main desktop and work laptop are ubuntu-mate (with virtualbox for the windows stuff)
