I'm quite curious as to where the CD distro craze is going to go. It
cant be too tough to create a distro where /home and /usr/local are
symlinks to HD partitions. When I upgrade the box these two dont get
erased (if a format happens), and openoffice/mplayer/whatever just still
work in the new system. It would be easier to just reboot with a new OS
A real patriot is the fellow who gets a parking ticket and rejoices
that the system works.
