What is NODOWS? It is a toolchain to build custom systems, from the outside in. To be more specific, systems like gentoo and freebsd provide an incredible amount of control and customizing when building themselves. Typically these systems are built from the inside out, meaning that a process is running in an operational environment whereby the environment is replaced piece by piece as it is rebuilt. This works very well in many situations. However, some situations involve a target system without the tools that do the actual building work, like the gcc compiler, or the make tool. In this case, another system environment needs to be used to build the target. This process introduces some interesting opportunities and challenges.
