If you read instructions and understand what you're doing, Bedrock Linux is a fascinating approach to working with Linux on the desktop. Jesse Smith's write up on Distro Watch is a must read if Bedrock is at all interesting to you.
Bedrock isn't for new users. Recent refugees from Windows will be totally befuddled if they think otherwise. But if you've been around a while and you're up for a new experience, Bedrock is a real trip - well worth spending time with!..
Pros: Awesome creation of wizardry and chroots, my favorite part is that I can have multiple of the same distro, so even if i completely mess up one permanently, i can just delete it and download/use a different one. Extremely stable, even though the creator says its not ready for production environments I have 2 servers and my laptop running it with no issues.
Cons: Can't uninstall / irreverrsible (keep some backups!)
Sometimes some programs don't work, like anything that needs systemd in a stratum that isn't booted cannot be added as a systemd service for example.
It's a Linux where you can create a combination system that has access to multiple Package managers from multiple distros at once. And has the tools to allow this in a more or less seemless manner.
This is done by installing a Linux first, and then running the Bedrock script to convert it to a Bedrock install, where you can then start installing other linux parts from other OS's.
So for example I could have a very stable and traditional Debian System installed, and converted to Bedrock, then install the AUR from Arch, and have access to a very stable base system, with the ability to download cutting edge packages, without running a Debian Testing system. This is cool.
