Void is a general purpose operating system, based on the monolithic Linux kernel. 

Its package system, xbps, allows you to quickly install, update and remove software; software is provided in binary packages or can be built directly from sources with the help of the XBPS source packages collection.

Currently there are over 6000 optimized binary packages for the x86, x86_64, ARMv6, ARMv7 architectures; also there's support to build (natively or cross compiling) from sources any package easily that is available in the XBPS source packages collection.

Void is developed entirely from scratch; it is not based on any existing Linux distributions.
