A modern GNU/Linux distribution based on Debian, designed for the desktops of today, developed in the open on a modern development platform. While Tanglu is based on Debian, we explore new ways of building a distribution, giving developers and users the best experience possible. The Tanglu project is vendor-independent and has a social policy similar to Debian.
Tanglu is a social project, building a distribution in the open, sharing technology with Debian and other distributions. It also re-thinks the way distributions are built today, aiming for a layered approach with applications shipped separately from the operating system core in future. Compared to Debian, it offers frequent time-based releases and often ships more recent software than Debian does, making use of recent Linux technology. The 1.0 release is not the finished product, it just marks a major milestone of the Tanglu Project.
