Hacked around on the LiveCD a bit more today. Got a pretty decent layout with a splash screen from jimmac, this background, and some of the media I’ve talked about on it. Not great yet, and I think we’ll have to wait until 2.12 to have a really tight-feeling product, but still will be pretty cool to hand out at LWE, I think. I actually burned isos today, too- the instructions from the ubuntu wiki made it pretty stupidly easy to grab an iso, hack at it, and turn it into something Real. Would have gotten it right on the first attempt if I weren’t an idiot. :) For the couple people who have asked, BTW, the reason I’m going with Ubuntu over Fedora or SUSE is that they appear to be going out of their way to make customizing a liveCD easy- I’ve never seen instructions like that for Fedora or SUSE, so that makes any other technical discussions pretty moot for me right now.

Patriots won again. Wish I weren’t a Fins fan. ;)
