Thumbs up I bet LFS would make a really great college project


If Linux was created in that manner and I'm sure the world could use a few more Linus's wouldn't it be good to have graduate programs designed around building your Linux system from scratch!

Does anybody know of a University or College offering such?

Perry,
since the LFS book is a learning tool it is such a course in itself
nope, most of the post secondary schools I know of want you to learn windows, not learn linux
