I find this a very remarkable new Linux Distro

"Linux software applications are notoriously difficult to install. The open source nature of most of these
applications is a tremendous strength for them, but it is also a weakness in that installation of an
application distributed in source code form always requires it to be compiled prior to installation. For
programmers, this is a routine task, but for anyone less acquinted with compiling software, this can
easily be very daunting. Resolving dependencies, header files and libraries doesn't make it any easier –
and, in fact, can quickly prove complicated even for the most experienced system administrator and

Various methods of packaging and compiling these software packages have been proposed and
implemented over the years, some of them with strict dependency monitoring, some with less strict.
Entire Linux distributions have been developed over the idea of simply using the source code and no
compiled binaries at all (the so-called “source-based” distributions).
Igelle, through Sjapp, assumes a sort of a “hybrid” approach to software packaging and distribution.
Sjapps are installed on an Igelle system in a binary, precompiled form, yet these can be easily produced
on the host system from source code prior to installation.

As it comes to dependency resolution, no inter-dependencies between different Sjapps are maintained.
Sjapps are assumed to be “independent”, and dependent only on the core operating system on which
they are installed. Sjapps can contain their own, built-in libraries that the applications may need in
order to operate. Commonly used shared libraries are assumed to be provided for by the core operating

Yes, it is. I tested the Live-CD and it is a very good work.  Wink
