Talking Ideas for new distros...


I was thinking the way things are, we should add a few more distributions to the mix =)

vistapirated This is a live CD that doesn't allow you to do access the web, do work or play games or change anything It just looks pretty.

BushfpAV setup to be the most aggressive anti virus in existence. It will not only automatically obliterate any file that looks like a virus, it will delete anything that looks like a virus on every computer attached to your network. It will then log onto the world wide web and continue to obliterate anything that looks like a virus. If you set the domain to .oil.com it will act even more aggressively.


If you have any more ideas for distributions post them below!

My official source of info about distros and such is distrowatch. You might want to check some there.

I think the world has enought linux distributions to play with.

The logo would have to be a rainbow.

How about WinBSD? DebHat/RedIan?

I've had it with all these crazy distros and there little quirks and packages. I'm gonna create a distro thats nothing but a kernel. Thats it. No command line. No gui. No complications.

That would certainly reduce the amount of problems resulting from user error.

Newbie-User: "I can't start $PROGRAM."
Tech-Support: "Glad to hear that everything is working!"

distro that carries only window manager/s and one package managment software ... everything else is already on the machine itself ... probably equipped with some kind of live-updates on both "ends" ...


helps to cut down one possible silly flaming catergory but we still have one more to go ... never mind , must have faith ...

[HALF JOKE]
I would like to see "Offensive Firewall distro" that would use combination of Tor, Metasploit, and some fingerprinting tools and attack the attackers through tor using metasploit.

Payloads should encrypt the attackers hard, usb drives and throw the key away
[/HALF JOKE]

So what happens if everyone starts to use such a firewall?

Perpetual hacking?

Or would all accumulate into one big program, like Windows?
