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.

I haven't heard anyone talk about MPEG-21, and it is supposed to solve a lot of the incompatibility problems with video formats and compatibilities with video players. It's a multimedia framework.

Building from source works well because you can run the ./configure script and it will check for dependencies and in a way it will tell you what environment variables need to be set. It's probably a superior way to install software, but since you have to run a Makefile and it's too hard to type 'make' and 'make install', that system will never work!
