Alt was a system of 2 OSTree compatible package managers initially designed for Boop! Linux. Alt offered 2 variants: Fivnex Alt which was written in Rust by Jamie Thalacker, and Innatical Alt, which has since become Innatical Pax. Alt intended to provide applications in a format that did not require building a new tree, while avoiding sandboxing, this mission is carried on by Pax. Alt was named after Anise's (The Developer of Boop! Linux) ex-girlfriend's alias, the status of this relationship lead to the name change.
