The vanilla project

What is vanilla?

It’s a new radically different, simple, modern Linux distribution based on a complete LLVM toolchain, musl and busybox.

The vanilla project uses many different parts of the system in contrast to popular distributions. As such, it is not qualified as “GNU/Linux” distribution as the minimal running system does not require GNU components. On the other hand, the linux distribution isn’t against GNU and provide many programs (like GCC) as alternatives.
