you can make whatever kind of distro you want. if you have the knowledge you can make it.

and please remove the religious statements in your signature. this is not the place for religion.

There is far far too many potential avenues to go down to tell you how to make a certain ideal distro from LFS. the point is that you use your own knowledge to tailor it in the way you want. if you are unable to do this of your own accord, then it is a futile affair to attempt to follow a step by step guide, as you might as well just install ubuntu in the first place.

and again... please change your signature. thanks

freedom? this is simply not the place to say things like that. You are not here to preach your beliefs to others or such like. you are here for linux help. i would suggest promoting your religion in more suitable sites as opposed to here. This is nothing to do with freedom or anything. this is just a geek website...

Barq, despite the fact that LQ welcomes suggestions and comments, we are not a democracy. Think of us as a fatherly dictatorship. I have disabled your signature. Please change it, while we accept that everyone would like to promote their religion, LQ is not the place to do it.

As an rough estimate, how many months would one person need (I'm assuming this could be a one person project, correct me if otherwise) to have a usable desktop OS that could:
1> Browse the internet
2> send/receive email
3> publish docs - office, spreadsheet etc
4> connect to the internet - dial up / ADSL
5> ftp and ssh
6> Play multimedia files

Thanks in advance
