Daniel “paradigm” Thau will present Bedrock Linux, a Linux distribution which allows the use of software from a variety of typically mutually exclusive Linux distributions, simultaneously and transparently.
If one would like a rock-solid stable base (for example, from Debian or a RHEL clone) yet still have easy access to cutting-edge packages (from, say, Arch Linux), automate compiling packages with Gentoo’s portage, and ensure that software aimed only for the ever popular Ubuntu will run smoothly - all at the same time, in the same distribution - Bedrock Linux will provide a means to achieve this.
The presentation will cover the motivation behind the Bedrock Linux, various real-world use cases for the project, concepts useful for utilizing and understanding it, as well as future plans.
Laptops are encouraged, and as always there will be pizza.
