Linux I have so much to thank Bill Gates for: introducing me to the baffling joys of consumer computing with Windows 95; teaching me the meaning of fear and dread with Windows 98; leading me to the sunlit uplands of Windows XP; getting me out of Microsoft altogether with the arrival of Vista. I hardly know where to start. And if I hadn't flown into a high-minded anti-Microsoft, down-with-Bill-Gates fury at the start of this year, would I ever have stumbled upon ZenWalk? I doubt it.

No, it's not said.

Then again, why would anybody expect somebody who was such a novice to start rolling their own kernel?

Seriously, if I roll my own (especially if I've done any amount of reading on the subject) I know that I shouldn't then do a dist-upgrade from ubuntu, allowing it to essentially overwrite what I've done.

Sorry, but if somebody is a novice they shouldn't be custom compiling kernels on a production system. If anything test it a bit first.
