GoboLinux - the alternative Linux distribution

GoboLinux - the alternative Linux distribution: "Is it a newbie-oriented distribution?

No, it is not. It is geared towards people who prefer to install applications from the original source packages. That is the main reason why each application gets its own directory: so you can install it from source there and then remove it with an 'rm -rf'. So, you see, GoboLinux is oriented at the experienced user who doesn't like things to be automagical. Our scripts merely automate procedures, but they don't 'make decisions', and whenever they have to, they ask first."
