I haven't used linux much (just red hat) so i'm not an expert. If u need beta testers who don't know much about linux and are first time linux users, i'll be glad to beta test it if u want

If on the other hand this is for people who are linux pros and who can get around the command prompt, there's not much I can do... :s

Add mplayer with all the windows-compatible codecs. That's a bit of a pain to install and it isn't listed on the normal apt-get repositories.

well i am going to use helixplayer (aka real player 10+ for linux it way better than the one for other os) seeing they are becoming GPLed

and say I if you want the name neonixOS or neonix because i am opening a sf.net project where i'll start working

I'd vote neonix over neonixOS. You don't see MepisOS or KnoppixOS. The OS is extraneous.

Any product that references RealPlayer does not excite me.

i am only supporting them becuase i help with the push to make them GPLed and i use the real player codec a lot and .... i might add mplayer at a later date.

anyone really want this to be a live cd because then i start download gnoppix's code

One question.. Who are you aiming this release at?

First timers and n00bs? People who already know and use linux? Linux powerusers? Or everybody?

What's the point...? There are plenty of better distros out there, with more people, and if all you're doing is putting files together on a CD it's hardley going to be anything special.

I can see a couple of points:

1) A learning experience. (Y)

2) Almost all 'distros' started out by someone wanting to fill their own needs. This may go nowhere, or it may be nice and catch on.

3) Did I mention 'learning experience' ;)

i can make verson later on for PowerPC, amd64... BUT I WILL NEED PEOPLE HELPING.

what you need to know:

a to z (because that where you place the package that ALREADY made.)

howto copy text which is already in one file and just paste it in text file including all the text.... if you want to help i'll make it make sence to you.

you can really help under any os.....

I agree. My suggestion is that instead of building your own distribution, you decide on a distro already made that u like and go with it.
