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 and read the introduction and FAQ for more.
The plan for Bedrock Linux development in the coming months revolves around functionality which can be added without significant under-the-hood changes to Bedrock Linux. Various ideas currently being worked on:
The fourth Bedrock Linux release, 1.0alpha4 Flopsie has been released. See the high-level changelog here and the installation instructions here
The audio from the Bedrock Linux presentation at the 2012 Ohio Linuxfest was recorded. This has been played over the slides and is available to be viewed as a video here. The audio recording can be found here and the slides can be found here.
