"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."
