Garbure is a collection of dedicated platforms proposed as GNU/Linux distributions.
Version: 20050105Garbure is a collection of dedicated platforms proposed as GNU/Linux distributions. Each distribution provides you with carefully selected tools for a specific target domain, and is completed with examples and documentation.
Operating System: Linux
The set of platforms included in Garbure forms an entity, but each distribution works also on its own. They complement each other like tools in a toolbox or volumes of an encyclopedia.
Tools, documentation and examples are chosen, tested and if necessary created by people active in the target domain.
All elements are arranged in the same way for each distribution. If you are for example used to work with the ratatouille distribution for animation movies, you will be able to use burek dedicated to audiovisual performance without much extra effort. In addition, it will be easy to advise and demonstrate a distribution you are not familiar with to a friend who is working in another domain.
These distributions are intended to be used as work station. The installation and distribution media is the LiveCD, making it also useful for demonstration purposes, promotion, occasional usage or rescue system. Meta-package installation is planned.
