Linux After a bit over 20 months, work on ROCK 3 has been completed. ROCK is a Distribution Build Kit. This means it is a tool to create and maintain GNU/Linux distributions. With a few keystrokes and some patience, you can have a generic distribution up in a short time. With some more work, you can adjust its package selection. With the help of freshmeat and the power of autotools you can add new packages in a heartbeat. The ChangeLog is available and the Roadmap for ROCK 4 is already there, too.

Meta distros like Gentoo can achieve 90% of what the target audience here would like to and still have time to live a normal life. I have built semi-embedded-like distros and livecds with Gentoo - too easy. Let the distro maintainers (-many people) do the work.
