Stali (static linux) – an independent, minimalistic Linux distribution based on the project.

– Follow the suckless philosophy
– Target x86_64 and arm (RPi) support
– Use custom Makefile’s for the base system (except Linux kernel so far)
– Ignore FHS of Linux, it simply sucks. Use a decent filesystem structure instead
– Don’t use systemd (read more about why it sucks)
– Make everything musl libc based
– Achieve binary size reduction (through the avoidance of glibc and other bloated GNU libraries)
– Achieve better performance than any other x86_64 or arm distribution, as only statically linked binaries are used
– Achieve better memory footprint than heavyweight distros using dynamic linking and all its problems
– Achieve better ABI stability and long-term maintenability of the static binaries (compared to their dynamic counterparts)
– Minimize security threat vector – potential flaws only on a per static binary basis (say good bye to the famous LD_PRELOAD and .so dependency resolver problems)
– Include a hand selected collection of the best tools for each task (including sbase, ubase, …)
– Upgrade/install using git, no package manager needed
