MachineKit is a Debian distro the same way Kamikaze is a Debian distro, both are based on
the official Debian distro that comes with BeagleBone Black. However, Kamikaze adds some software, most importantly Redeem, Octoprint, CuraEngine, Toggle and the necessary
graphics libraries to make Toggle work. It is in essence a specialized Debian distro so Replicape will work with BeagleBoneBack right out of the box without any additional software installation.
