    so nixos, gentoo, steamos, openwrt, microos are all the same? enough to learn one of them to know the others?

    thanks for your insight. i now have a completly different view on linux.

    What's so hard to understand?

    Right from the About page:

    The key details you'll want to know

    Serpent OS is building a pioneering Linux distribution, with a focus on cutting-edge technologies to streamline performance and developer workflow. This enables users to get things done while reducing friction for users to contribute. We make the same tools that we use available to you to ensure you get the best experience.

    Goals

    Take control of your computer
    Get the most from your hardware
    Enjoy a reliable experience
    Improve your experience behind the scenes
    Develop and contribute quickly and efficiently
    Be part of a thriving community
    Have fun while interacting with other users and contributors​
    Basically it's a steaming pile of horse feathers, like all Linux vendors.

    I'm reminded of a commercial that used to run for an injury lawyer, the actor would look at the camera and say "If you're injured, we will fight to get you every penny you deserve...or we'll go to court!".

    As he said it he would gibe like a stern nod and a smile to the camera.

    The obvious question is how exactly is this any different from what every other lawyer will do?

    Same this with this guy's About page, every distro makes the same promise, there is literally nothing unique about this one.

    Of course, this is true of all distros, you tried one, you have tried them all.

    I'm looking forward to Ikey Doherty abandoning the project once it becomes stable and too boring for him.
    Yeap, that guy is really good at building distributions. If he was not, then nobody would care whether or not he is off to try out new things somewhere else:-)

    I'd be cautious with Serpent OS given the founder's track record of abandoning his projects or being in limbo of slow development (e.g. Solus).

    Nonetheless, I have high hopes for this distro and I'll be eager to give it a fair chance since its performance oriented
    My hardware is good enough, but GitHub Action's hardware isn't good enough to build LLVM twice in a few minutes. if Serpent OS is stable enough in the future, I look forward to being able to use it to accelerate CI workflows.​

    Solus and Serpent OS are now "brothers", so I prefer to think of them as the same distribution.

    Why can't they use one of the many already in existence Linux installers?

    Or even just an install script?

    Interesting concepts but I feel it's a bit late.
