UCK your own Linux distro!

,----[ Quote ]
| Thatâs why you might want to construct 
| your own distribution. Perhaps you know 
| exactly how a good Linux distro should be, 
| and every time you install Linux you set 
| up specific applications and settings. Set 
| your own distro up and bingo, every time 
| you load it onto a new machine it is 
| exactly how you like it.
| There are tutorials online how to roll 
| your own Linux distro but hereâs a new 
| tool which makes it dead simple to base 
| something on the ever-popular Ubuntu.


Exploring Lilliput: Is the Cloud Replacing Tiny Linuxes?

,----[ Quote ]
| In case anyone wondered why I haven't been 
| offering any of my highly-opinionated pieces 
| on Linux Planet lately, it's because I've 
| been exploring Lilliput: sampling for myself 
| a few of the better known small-footprint 
| distros that offer an astonishing amount of 
| computing power packed into a mere handful of 
| megabytes. And though I haven't been at this 
| long enough to try out more than a small 
| fraction of the available ones, some overall 
| characteristics of the breed are beginning to 
| appear. The most interesting feature to me is 
| that there seem to be two main branches of 
| small distros: the Tools and the Products. 



Use SUSE Studio to Build a Linux OS From Scratch

,----[ Quote ]
| SUSE Studio is what powered the fan-made "Chrome OS" we
| posted yesterday, which, in that case, was a semi-
| stripped-down system loaded with the developers' version
| of Chrome, Google webapp links, and OpenOffice. If speed
| and cloud computing aren't your bag, you can create a
| fully functional system with Firefox, 3D graphics, and
| whatever apps you can find installed. Want your system to
| start up with an AWN dock and Launchy keystroke launcher
| running? Not a problem.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
