New Gentoo based Linux distribution

There is a new Gentoo based Linux distribution. This is called Clover OS. It comes with a basic TWM desktop window manager and is very fast to boot. No SystemD bloat.

The Live CD will load a default TWM desktop. But there are options after login to install another desktop environment such as MATE or KDE. I chose to install MATE and the desktop was installed and then logged into automatically. I went out to do some things and came back to see a MATE desktop waiting for me. Very nice.
