    FreeVO Linux


    Hello Everyone!!,
    I know that this is a repost but i figured it would be better on its own.
    I really want to make a distro out of Freevo.
    I really love freevo. I think that it would be even better if it was a distro instead of a application. the problem is, what stays and what goes. then there would have to be a way to administer you system.

    Also you would need a computer deticated to being a PVR / media server because with most of the componets stripped out, it would be hard to use as a regular desktop. but it would still be great becuase, for the people that do have a deticated PVR computer, they would have a distro that would be no more that 150MB!! leaving more space for media!!!
    If some one thinks that this is a good idea please send me an email so we can talk

    if you don't know what freevo is http://freevo.sourceforge.com
    my email address is edude03@gmail.com com
    have a good 1

    I say make it yourself, but I say that about anything and everything.

    freevo linux

    I love the idea, since I'm just now scouring for a distro to install just so I can install Freevo.
