T2 is not a common Linux distribution - it is a flexible Open Source System

Development Environment, allowing the creation of custom distributions with

bleeding edge technology.
 
With T2 you can define targets for various purposes, ranging from embedded
Linux systems with a few MB of size over server configurations to a full 
desktop system featuring X.Org foundation, KDE, Gnome, OpenOffice.Org and 
many more. Those targets can be compiled for use on the most common 
architectures: Alpha, ARM, AVR32, Blackfin, IA64, HPPA/HPPA64, IA64,
MIPS/MIPS64, PowerPC/PowerPC64,  SPARC/SPARC64, SuperH, x86/x86-64 -
theoretically any GCC/Linux supported one.
