Bedrock Linux is a Linux distribution created with the aim of making most of the (often seemingly mutually-exclusive) benefits of various other Linux distributions available simultaneously and transparently.
If one would like a rock-solid stable base (for example, from Debian or a RHEL clone) yet still have easy access to cutting-edge packages (from, say, Arch Linux), automate compiling packages with Gentoo's portage, and ensure that software aimed only for the ever popular Ubuntu will run smoothly - all at the same time, in the same distribution - Bedrock Linux will provide a means to achieve this. Watch a demonstration or two and read the introduction and FAQ for more.
A large number of complications have arisen since Nyla's original release date was set, including the numerous hardware failures. Moreover, while working on Nyla many of the required changes have been found to require much more time to implement than previously expected. Thus, Nyla's release is being delayed. The new tentative release date is end-of-summer 2015.
