Lunar is a source based Linux distribution developed by a talented team of programmers from all over the world, working together to extend the Linux technology into better-tailored and more optimized software for the end user.
Lunar uses and builds upon the Linux kernel, and offers a unique package management system which builds each software package, or module, from scratch for the machine in which it is being installed.
This is what sets Lunar apart. It makes customization a breeze– you choose the compile options before a module is built, and install a lean and uncluttered system that has exactly what you need. Nothing more, or less.
The advantage for the end user is clear: a system that is both robust and stable, and easy to install and maintain without sacrificing variety and flexibility. Lunar has built in integrity checking and a robust self-repairing capability. It also enables system users to develop their own source-packages using the toolset.
