    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    I'd recommend Linux From Scratch for building your own distribution:

    There are literally thousands of software packages for Linux available so you can pick from those to spice it up as you wish. You can find many of them listed and described here:

    Linux App Finder | Helping find the Linux apps you need

    DistroWatch.com: Put the fun back into computing. Use Linux, BSD.


    Check here for the different desktops environments and window managers that you can pick from:

    Window Managers for X


    You can find eye-candy if you want it at different locations across the web such as:

    Eyecandy for your KDE-Desktop - KDE-Look.org

    Eyecandy for your GNOME-Desktop - GNOME-Look.org


    You'll probably need to spice it to suit yourself unless you intend trying to spice it to suit everyone else's taste, which probably won't be possible.

    Best of luck to you with your project.
