"If you worked with Slackware or Arch Linux before, you'll feel at home, although Dragora GNU/Linux takes pride in the fact that it isn't based on any other Linux distribution. The repositories don't have the number of packages that Debian or Fedora have, but remember this is a distro that tries to keep it simple and aimed at tinkerers who are not afraid to compile their own packages. You will see that using Dragora GNU/Linux is a fun ride, and you will learn a lot by using it.

"You may have noticed how we use the name "Dragora GNU/Linux" and perhaps you wonder why, since you've seen other distributions employ just the name Linux, as in, for example, Gentoo Linux. It's basically an ideological thing stemming from the fact that Linux is the name of the kernel only, but many of the core components like glibc and gcc come from the GNU project, so it's fair to give credit where credit is due. After all, Linux distributions as we know them today wouldn't have been what and how they are today if it weren't for this collaboration."
