Is it really that hard to build a distribution.  I, as untrained as I am,
have an old laptop 97, that I built lfs on in 200?, so I could have a
working laptop. At the time I could not find a distro cd that would
boot.  It's system is sleek, just X with a couple or apps (firefox, gqview,
ect ).  Automating the build process with scripts would not be that tough.

Stallman won't even own an encrypted dvd and I bet doesn't go to sites
needing flash.  I am surprised he, or other folks at the gnu foundation
don't roll their own os.

I use ubuntu for my desktop, because it is easy.  I also like the fact
that my nvidia card's 3d works, and I do watch flash and listen to m4a
files once in a while.
