Right whilst we seem to be discussing in the other topic, I suppose its time to see who's actually in with this.

Please, no trolling in this thread. Only post if you are serious about this.

I suppose just start off with what you can do really.

<< Oh, and btw, NeoLin is obviously not the name >>

Lets do this!

It doesn't matter what you can and can't do in this, this is a community coming together to build something.

Wasn't there already a Linux Distro from Neowin long time ago, if I'm not mistaken ?
Nevertheless, I would like to offer some help, well, no kernel programming, but other programming related stuff :)

I'll do my best to help, just set me aside on all the super-easy stuff (:
more specifically: I can definitely help with the stock software, but I'll need to do some major brushing up on my C/C++ before I'll be able to help on the rest of it...but I'll do my best :p
(BTW, why don't you put a name vote in somewhere? Shift2 is my vote, unless someone comes up with something cooler.)

EDIT: I'm somewhat good at C# and other .NET languages (again, vote for Mono!), and so it shouldn't be too hard to pick up Java if we wanna go that route. I'll also brush up on my C++ :p

I am in, I can do the programming stuff (I can code in C/C++, little bit of Java & C#) , though I have no prior experience with building distros. Can do testing documentation etc etc.

+1 to Shift2

We would need designers / modders / coders.. etc ..
Wow this is lot of work .. :D

Lets gear up guys!

I used to test Shift Linux and write copy for our website. I can do both of those things now, and I can perhaps help with a bit more brainstorming. :)

How about Shift2?

Programming wise I really only have experience with PHP and VB/VB.net (woo mono!), but Im willing to learn anything to help further the cause.
I have been learning how to build linux for a little bit now, and have had some success with building an Arch install and getting stuff going on it.

So do I.

I can do some basic kernel programming, as well as some C++ or designs. IT student over here ;-)

Oh, that one was floating around as a possibility years back, when Shift was up and running. I think it was a morph of Lindows. :pinch:

I'd be able to do bits of coding, however I can't make any major commitments since I code all day too.

Another vote for Shift2 here. That said, I think this was discussed in the other threads, but is there any way we can incorporate the old Shift name/logo, and continue that with a non-compatible new release? It might give the distro a recognition boost.
