Linux Lately, we've all read a lot of articles about desktop Linux - so many that it's getting hard to tell them apart. One says "Why Linux Sucks," the next "My Success With Linux." Even Michael Robertson of Lindows.com joined the fun with his "Why Desktop Linux Sucks, Today." But very few people have proposed anything radical, and I believe that's what's needed to take GNU/Linux to the next level.

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org is a really good site which details how to build your own linux box from source code. The basic instructions end with a development capable system pingable on a network, and from there instructions are available which tell you how to add the features you want to the system. The associated discussion lists are top notch.
