Sounds good. Do try to keep us informed of your progress.

From what I've seen of independence, at its current stages it is very
similar to seul-dev-apps, except that seul doesn't like non-free applications
and independence doesn't mind things like kde/qt. So in that respect, it may
well be that we will be presenting a kde/gnome type of choice to the
world. But hopefully it will not be a combative image...

Jfm sent me a copy of the independence announce; we're going to try to figure
out how we can best work together to make an end-user linux happen. After
all, we're all working towards the same goal here.

Agreed that it's still in the formative stages. I hope it turns into
something; perhaps somebody should mail the guy in charge of the nubox
project and see if he wants to share information or ideas.
