Anyone interested in making a distro?
I know there are somehow similar distros to my idea, but i think that my idea has some adventages. Anywas, here what i was thinking:
to make a live distro which could be burned to cd or usb memory stick without any problems (cause i know that it can be really problematic to get linux working from usb). also the installation should be performed from windows or linux. make the distro as small as 20-30 mb.
now, the main idea behind this distro is something similar to ultimate boot cd (http://www.ultimatebootcd.com) but with much difference. first of all, the distro whould boot into ram, allowing user to have their usb stick/cd/dvd-rom free for further usage. it sould have a simple/lightweight GUI (xfce comes to mind). there whould be native support for internet connection + installed seamonkey (since it has browser+mail client+irc+etc...). it should also contain videolan vlc for all kinds of multimedia (similar to geexbox). and probably the most important feature whould be a bunch of tools which can help user to repair some kind of damage made to their main OS (undelete, unformat, mbr/partition/bootsector repair, antivirus + ntfs3g for deleting infected files, etc...)
things that this distro shoudn't have are stuff like office suite, games and all other stuff which comes natively with almost all other distros.
so, to sum it up, this distro whould be a swiss army knife for any user which is expiriencing some trouble with their primary OS.
if anyone likes my idea and has knowledge to make such a distro, please send me an email or PM, so i can help out (and make a detail design document) cause i just don't have enough knowledge to do it myself.
