Lightbulb New distro for new organization


I posted a while back, a couple of months or so ago, about wanting to create a new Linux distro based on Fedora (mainly because of the Anaconda installer) that would be used as a free alternative to "other" operating systems used in churches. I do not have the time available to completely create this thing on my own. I need some volunteer help to really get in and create this os. It is to be full of "churchy" software and provide an office desktop for say a minister or secretary at a church. This os is simply one part of a much larger project I am taking on. I have created an organization who's sole purpose will be to use technology (especially low cost or free operating systems) to save churches and other ministries money.

The site is located at http://www.groovypenguin.com . I would just use an existing os, but there are none that meet my needs. If you are interested in joining a team to create this new "Christianized" os, let me know. All you Christians out there, wouldn't you like to have a Linux distro designed for believers? Filters and stuff preinstalled, Bible study software, Office and prductivity software preinstalled; and all of this for free. If you are a Christian programmer, please respond and help us build a distro for us.

I don't think you need to create a new operating system. Your time would be better spent developing software to use on existing linuxes. For example, if Servant Keeper could install on Fedora without using wine or similar, I'd have my wife off the virus mill for good.
