GoboLinux – an independent developed Linux distribution from Brazil.

GoboLinux organizes programs in different, own way, and files from each program are placed under their respective program’s own dedicated subdirectory. The makers of GoboLinux have said that “the file system is the package manager”, and the GoboLinux package system uses the file system itself as a package database. GoboLinux uses symlinks and an optional kernel module called GoboHide to achieve all this while maintaining full compatibility with the traditional Linux file system hierarchy.

GoboLinux uses “Compile”, which is a program that downloads, unpacks, compiles source code tarballs, and installs the resulting executable code, all with a single command, using simple compilation scripts known as “recipes”. The Compile system is similar to Gentoo’s Portage system.

The project is under active development from 2003.
GoboLinux is available as a Live/Install DVD for i686 CPU with Enlightenment as the default desktop environment.
