That may well be. Having experience from Slackware (otherwise fine, but needs 
too much administration) and RedHat (currently running, just plain excellent),
I think one key point in seleccting the base distribution is the amount of
administrative effort required to have the system running properly. That is,
the less time you have to spend as root, the better. Maybe we should review
different distributions about this?

Agreed. We can make a proper installed on top pf Linux kernel just as well.

I suppose that's a bit faster and more memory efficient.

A newsgroup could be a good idea.

I'm also willing to host a web site.
