▲ 22 ▼ Gokrazy - a minimal Linux for raspberry pi
userland for your Raspberry Pi 3 appliances
For a long time, we were unhappy with having to care about security issues and Linux distribution maintenance on our various Raspberry Pis.
Then, we had a crazy idea: what if we got rid of memory-unsafe languages and all software we don’t strictly need?
Turns out this is feasible. gokrazy is the result.

This is pretty crazy. Perhaps no more crazy than running desktop operating systems on servers with huge amounts of software which just isn't required for the tiny go services running on them. CoreOS is another similar idea (for servers), and has auto-update.
