The Future of Funtoo - Funtooture

Filed under
Gentoo

As the title states, I've been thinking about the future of Funtoo and
wanted to post some of my ideas here, so you can offer feedback. These
ideas are pretty complex so take some time to reflect on them.

What does the future of Funtoo hold? Basically, more of a fork,
supporting MacOS X and other platforms if we want, while maintaining
Gentoo compatibility in all areas possible.

Well, first, let me share some of my ideas for the future of Funtoo/
Gentoo:

1) I'd like to have Funtoo under MacOS X. Not in a prefix
configuration. Basically, it would be in a hybrid mode where some
packages like gcc, perl, python would be provided by Apple and would
be "immutable" (you can't upgrade them) while others can be emerged
like normal.

2) I want to have a simpler Linux core system. Everything in a stage3
these days is quite complex. So I would like to rewrite ~250 ebuilds
of the core system. I would like to make all "wrappers" optional.
Nearly all of the Gentoo-centric features would be in optional packages.

3) I want to start using the 3-clause BSD license for future Funtoo
work.

  • DataBasin - object inspector and updates
    First, the underlying DataBasinKit framework got an important update.
  • In-demand dev skills, understanding licensing, and more open source news
  • Higher ed systems expanding access to open-source materials
    Open-source learning technology is at the core of higher education for institutions that want to reach broader audiences with very strict ideas about how convenient learning should be. But developing these initiatives does not happen quickly or easily. It requires strong leadership in information technology, expertise to determine which solutions work best for a campus, and a financial commitment to making sure the technology is sustainable.
  • Proxmark Pro Proxmark3 Standalone Open Source RFID Tester (video)
    Rysc Corp has unveiled a new open source board in the form of the Proxmark Pro which now offers a true standalone client and RFID test instrument, check out the video below to learn more. The Proxmark Pro will feature an FPGA with 5 times the logic cells of the Proxmark3 and will remove the need to switch between HF and LF bit streams during operation, to use developers.
  • ErupteD Brings Vulkan To The D Programming Language
    The D programming language is just the latest to have support for Vulkan alongside C++, Rust (via Vulkano, if you missed that project), Go, and many other modern languages getting bindings for this Khronos Group high performance graphics API. Should you not be familiar with the D language, see Wikipedia.
