You can read [1].

It's not that simple. Using a tiny Linux would lead into less security
by default provided by TorBOX.

And finally TorBOX is simply a collection of Linux commands and
configuration files, automated with bash scripts. The concept works
anywhere with anything. After some work you can use any operating
system. [2] People with special needs can build there own images.
Unfortunately I've learned it's impossible to support all use cases at once.

If other people with knowledge from other operating systems would join
the project we could make the operating system choice an option.
