How unimaginably difficult is this to do?
There are as far as I know, no Linux kernel hackers, nor distros that originate from this fair island right?
Yes it might be very,very difficult and subject to abject failure
in sticking together a distro.... call it Dolmen Linux (or other),
no doubt the packaging system would be one of the first places
such a suggestion would stumble.
Some (like me) favouring a FreeBSD style ports system others favouring
a Debian style system and others still favouring *rpm style packaging.
That said other *LUG have done interesting things like making blackbox.
Perhaps making a distro would be ..... umm.... fun.
Just a pseudo random thought.
I'm only laughing on the outside
My smile is just skin deep
If you could see inside I'm really crying
You might join me for a weep.
