6 Tools to Easily Create Your Own Custom Linux Distro

,----[ Quote ]
| While itâs hard to make the claim that 
| there arenât enough Linux distros out 
| there, itâs also hard to escape the fact 
| that no distribution is all things to all 
| people. There are all kinds of reasons to 
| consider rolling your own, but many people 
| never make the attempt because it seems 
| like such a huge undertaking. Fortunately, 
| with modern software we can create new 
| distros, remixes, and custom configurations 
| in a matter of minutes instead of months. 
| Here, weâll showcase some of the current 
| software tools that make this so easy.

| This is how some of the popular Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| There are plenty of reasons for wanting a 
| low-resource distro running on your

| might be that you want to run 200 virtual 
| machines simultaneously on your desktop.


Another one-disk wonder: DexOS

| I got an e-mail a day ago that reminded me 
| about DexOS, which is another one-disk 
| wonder. Youâre probably still wondering

| out of date as to be completely irrelevant.

KGB Says: The Best Linux is Ubuntu or Fedora 

,----[ Quote ]
| Last night while watching my usual list of 
| recorded television programs, I saw a 
| commercial for KGB, the company that begs 
| you to text them with your questions. For a 
| mere 99 cents, they'll answer any question 
| that you ask of them. I'm sure that they 
| have their share of tricksters with 
| questions such as, "What is life" and "What 
| is the air speed of an unladen swallow." 
| But my mind dances to a different beat. 
| And, with my wife's permission, I posed the 
| following question using her cell phone: 
| "Which Linux distribution is the best for 
| new users?"
