GoboLinux is an alternative Linux distribution which
redefines the entire filesystem hierarchy.

such as /Programs/Xorg-Lib/7.7 and /Programs/GCC/6.2.0. Like it? Learn more...

Introducing GoboLinux 016

We are extremely happy to announce GoboLinux 016. This release, built for x86-64, is a complete update of the core system.

The flagship feature of this release is Runner, a brand new tool for container-free filesystem virtualization. It brings Gobo's remarkable support for concurrently installed versions to the next level. We also overhauled our desktop, with a customized Awesome WM setup.
