Orchid is a fast Gentoo installer for desktop computers and laptops.
The idea behind this project is to provide a graphically usable Gentoo system with modern tools and a nice look, all with a quick installation.
We do not use any ancillary repositories and deeply respect the spirit of Gentoo.
Your packages are built from official sources, following the guidelines of the editors.
Thanks to the compilation from source, the system is optimized for your computer. You can disable some unnecessary features in your usage when installing packages.
We have several desktops from GNOME to KDE Plasma, and also a window manager like DWM.
Continuously updated (rolling-release), Orchid follows the rhythm of Gentoo. A step back is taken on upstream versions in order to gain in stability.
We use a detection system that optimizes your system according to your hardware. Moreover, we also offer the TkG kernel, optimized for gaming, but also for compiling.
