VLOS (VidaLinux) – a Linux distribution based on Gentoo.

VLOS uses the Red Hat Anaconda installer to make it easier for end users to install it on a hard drive, with GNOME as a default desktop environment.

The purpose of VLOS is to make the Linux operating system more accessible to home and office users. It combines the power of ebuilds and portage and compiling all software from source (aside from a select few larger ones, which are available in binary) into an easy-to-use package.

In December 2009, VLOS has been rebuilt with Funtoo, a fork of Gentoo Linux.
