List of famous/known OSes creating started with LFS
 
I was just curious whether there are any Linux distributions that are created starting with LFS. I would like to hear some famous or known Linux distros, regarding both desktop and server ones. I mean that have used just the books LFS, BLFS and maybe others.

I think there are none that I have ever heard about.

In a very real sense however, all distro's can trace their roots to all the tasks that LFS teaches.

A disto differs from LFS in that distro's tend to offer advantages. Some of those include package management, target platform support that includes a broad array of drivers and software. Distro's tend to have a mandate or mission statement that tells the user what they can expect and what the typical use is for.

I can't say these are "famous" even very well "known". One is even defunct now. But anyway...
Zenix (discontinued)
NuTyX
KaarPux
Most of the big and famous distros trace their roots back to Debian, Slackware, or Red Hat. I wonder if you've ever seen any of those Linux timeline graphics...
