Beta or prerelease software is not intended for inexperienced users, as the software may contain bugs or may potentially damage your system. We strongly recommend that users exercise caution and save all mission-critical data before installing or using this software.
Lunar Linux (64-bit) is an operating system maintained around a source-based package management system also called Lunar. The installation disk installs a complete bootstrap development system first. After the user tells the Lunar manager which packages will be required, it automatically builds the software by downloading current source code and locally compiling an optimized package. On the downside, compiling software from scratch may be time-consuming and complicate the task of keeping the packages up to date.
