    It's not set in stone by any means. I'm wide open for suggestions. Interestingly enough, if I follow some sort of set criteria for my ratings, the rating tag might actually be the most "fair" part of my whole site. Haha. Damn it all.

    I reckon the best Idea would be a star rating ( keeping it plain and simple). so it is to the point

    Yeah, the penguin/coaster thing would be more complicated. How about just penguins? If it doesn't earn one, it doesn't get one. I'd still be up for someone whipping up some tiny penguin graphics. I'd need whole and half penguins. Anyone up to it? If not, I may do some Gimping tonight and see what I can come up with. That tux graphic is public domain, isn't it? This one:

    You can just use the penguin images used already on LF. And I think having a negative deal is a good thing as well, just my two cents.

    Ah, that's a good idea. Filled-in tuxes and grayed-out tuxes. I'll pull it off here then (provided these aren't copyrighted... any thoughts, Jason?). If I were to also go with the coasters, anyone have a tiny CDROM icon link somewhere?

    Try looking at linuxiso.org, and click on one of the distros.

    They have cd images there.

    They have a message at the bottom "All images, trademarks and copyrights herein are property of their respective owners. All else Copyright 2000-2002 Linuxiso.org." I don't know if that means that the cd image is copyrighted, or if it's free for public use.

    Sounds like a neat idea, if I need a quick reference I'm usually stuck with reading the entire review (which doesn't bother me, as it's amusing) but the key word is quick. It'd be nifty if you could go and see up at the top that's it is a good or bad rating and run over to a mirror to download, for those in a hurry.

    I'm trying out a penguin system, based on the 4 criteria I stated earlier in this thread: installs, detects my hardware, is useful offline, and I can actually be productive with it.

    I'm still not sure whether I want to add on the coasters or if the penguins are good enough.
