Projects / GoboLinux


GoboLinux is an alternative Linux distribution that redefines the entire filesystem hierarchy. There is no package manager: instead, packages can be managed directly through the filesystem. In GoboLinux, each program resides in its own versioned directory, such as /Programs/Xorg/7.1/, keeping applications self-contained and improving system maintenance.
