Linux Lorma linux 4.0 is the first distribution to be based on Fedora Core, outside of Redhat, that is. It is one of those new breed of single-CD distros that try to include only the best-of-breed applications.

Supplemental CD's
by blixel on Wed 24th Dec 2003 06:16 UTC

I like the idea of putting the "best of breed" software on 1 CD and all, but how about some *optional* supplemental CD's? You could put the "almost best of breed" stuff on CD2, and the "not so great/popular packages (but we like them)" on CD3.

Or create topical CD's like Games Supplemental, Office Supplemental, and so on.

Seems like a win-win situation to me. People who want the 1 CD install have it, and people who want to get most of their packages from CD (so they don't have to hunt them down online - espcially newbies or dial-up users) can download the additional, optional CD's.

Just an idea.
