Linux After a bit over 20 months, work on ROCK 3 has been completed. ROCK is a Distribution Build Kit. This means it is a tool to create and maintain GNU/Linux distributions. With a few keystrokes and some patience, you can have a generic distribution up in a short time. With some more work, you can adjust its package selection. With the help of freshmeat and the power of autotools you can add new packages in a heartbeat. The ChangeLog is available and the Roadmap for ROCK 4 is already there, too.

Well... i had a look at the tool... Its a WOW kinda tool... People here may use your own disto, complete customization and sharing your exact distro with someone else.. what more naming the distro by your own name! Simply awsome... its like dream come true for many people!

well I wouldn't go as far as to say that it's a dream come true. After all it basicaly means that I have to do pretty much the same task that the whole debian/ubuntu or any other distro team does ALL BY MYSELF. Regardless of how grand this might sound I don't find it a dream come true in any way. Man maybe you should get a job or something if you really have that much free time.
