Potabi Systems is a derivative of a sister project, CoreNGS, which is a derivative of FreeBSD, as well as components from other BSD-branded systems, and Illumos.
This distribution wants to fix issue the Linux's viral license issues that makes a lot of companies (i.e. Nvidia) more hesitant to support Linux, whether it'd be in software, drivers, etc. Potabi solves this issue by allowing developers to continue using their license model of choice.
Potabi aims to be a supportive ecosystem, that allows the best of open-source to work with - not against - the big names in proprietary software. Focusing on dependability, maintainability, simplicity, and sane structure are the core pillars of Potabi that Linux doesn't fufil. -- Potabi Systems
