I'm a bit the "tweak it till you break it" kind of distro-hopper, so I jumped on the opportunity without a single worry, but honestly it's easier and less dramatic than I expected! Really nice to have the opportunity to mix your favorite feature from your chosen distro.

Overhead really is minimal as well.

I wouldn't recommend it to my grandpa as a first distro, but it's honestly a pretty damn efficient distro for those who already have an idea of what they need/want in mind.

I haven't tried anything honestly, sticking to what I know best as it's installed on my main computer and I don't want to break it too early, but so far so good.

Bedrock linux allows multiple Linux distributions together without a need of VM or a Multi-boot environments.
You can have different distributions installed and run a program from a certain distro from within currently booted ditribution without need of VM.
I really liked the concept as I need CentOS as my primary system for development and then I need cutting edge distribution for running latest versions of various applications.
I am currently running Ubuntu 22.10 on top of Cent OS 9 with latest release (4.18) of XFCE applications like thunar.

Bedrock Linux allows you to use various Linux distros. I use Void Linux with Arch. This finally got me to stop distro hopping. I am able to use Void Linux with Arch's packages and AUR. Using Void and Arch's packages allows me to have a lightweight system with the best of both distros.

Bedrock does not add any overhead.
Allows users to pick init systems, kernel, and packages from each distro.

Some distros may not work as well as others.
