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.

Re: Supplemental CD's

That idea does not require creating a seperate distrobution.

Just think how much time could be saved if the cd's were created for an _existing_ distro.

I hate fsck'ing with RPM's built for other version of other distros. If there was one distro that I knew I could find working packages for it would be my default distro. I don't care how many points it misses in other areas.

I did a study once a little over a year ago and about 70% or the non-packaged RPM's I tried to install failed to install "out of the box". This is even with a mild effort to fix dependencies.

70%! that statistic is horible.
