I once had an idea for a Gentoo based distro where you had to compile everything on a black screen with black text and highlighting

Well you know the way Gentoo users like everything to be as hard as possible.....

S&M Linux - "Be gentoo with me" edition

Maybe this would be an interesting project ?

Oh, and no books allowed .. Mwuhahaha ;)

[EDIT]

I also considered removing the lettering from the keys, and using a foreign keyboard layout .. but figured that was probably a bit over the top  :o

I would rather use Windows ME than have to go through that ;)

 If you want to try Slackware out without a lot of fuss... At Distrowatch... 'Puppy'   get the  Slacko-5.x version (under 200MB). You can burn it to a CD and even create a savefile (all your experiments etc.,) on the CD you burn the .iso to and you won't need your HDD at all. It's based strictly on Slackware and a sweet little program that will surprise you as to just what it can do. An excellent way to play with a program without using any of your HDD. You mess up, just burn another CD. The Puppy Linux Forum is very friendly if you need help.
Enjoy  ;)

Thanks, at the moment I only have 3G for Internet connectivity. The only company who does ADSL installations does not know when or if they can install our line.

Downloads on 3G is also very expensive.

Just one of the joys of living in South Africa.
