This is a really useful tool for putting packages from multiple distributions on the same machine and accessing them without a virtual machine or container.

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.
