A forum for general discussion about Linux. If it is about Linux, but does not seem to fit in any other forum, then this is probably the best place to post it.

Alpine uses busybox which is pretty popular and not too incompatible with the GNU coreutils, flags missing here and there sort of deal. A lot of bash scripts probably won't work, since people who tend to write bash scripts tend to use all the GNU coreutils niceties (and it doesn't actually have bash I think lol), but I'll take a bet you won't ever run into issues with running most POSIX compliant shell scripts. Same sort of deal here with the BSDs!
That's why I am migrating my whole configurations and shell scripts to POSIX compliant; after I forced my Arch to use Dash instead of Bash I had to alter some scripts and packages. but everything GNU related thing is getting updated it breaks the whole setup. specially (Autoconf and its sisters) so I had to freeze/prevent some packages from update so my system won't break
