Void is a really neat independent, general purpose, rolling release Linux distribution. It has a funny way of being very popular with its userbase while always staying a bit beneath the radar.

Curious why it says it's "based on the monolithic Linux® kernel." Now let me be very clear, I 100% support using the word "Linux" to refer to GNU/Linux (obviously!). But when you're a distribution, if you're going to specifically call out the Linux kernel, to me that sounds like you're excluding the implied GNU userland. This isn't a Stallmanian "use the right terms!!111" thing, I was genuinely confused, thinking perhaps it was a new userland, given how it describes itself as Super New and Special. I had to do some digging to find it does use GNU userland.
