    its not about BSD or linux or what libc it uses, its just a project for making a statically linked userspace

    musl is chosen cuz glibc dosent fully support static linking
    bsd tools are chosen cuz GNU are made with glibc in mind
    etc etc


    y'all should at least check their web site before ranting nonsense

    For fairness sake, it says already at the front page that it is a Suckless/OpenBSD/Linux-based distro.

    But indeed, it is its 100% static nature that makes me very interested in it. I am considering installing some of its packages on my "standard" dynamic Arch system - especially a shell and Pacman. I have been hit by a broken glibc before, and having the core static would make that much less risky.

    EDIT: By the way. If you are interested specifically in OpenBSD "core utilities" port to Linux, you might want to check out obase:
