 OpenSDE has an easy configuration tool which makes it the right tool allowing anyone to put together their own GNU/Linux distribution that addresses their specific needs. Currently OpenSDE already supports over 2500 software packages and the number is still growing. OpenSDE has an easy configuration tool which makes it the right tool allowing anyone to put together their own GNU/Linux distribution that addresses their specific needs.

-FIXME Our oak tree based mascot is all about symbolism (see wikipedia). For instance the oak is a common symbol of strength and endurance. The life span of oaks typically ranges from 200 to 600 years, with a few species even reaching 1,000 years. Also oak trees are known to provide shelter and grow tall and strong.+FIXME Our oak tree based mascot is all about symbolism (see [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oak#Cultural_significance|wikipedia]]).

 This is exactly what we have in mind for OpenSDE and OpenSDE based targets. Targets are the seedlings that grown on the OpenSDE tree, like acorns in an oak. We want these seedlings to grown tall and become strong and enduring, just like the proverb 'Mighty oaks from tiny acorns grow'. With the right nurture and care the OpenSDE tree can last for generations. This is exactly what we have in mind for OpenSDE and OpenSDE based targets.
