1. Yes, it is a Fedora Remix. It is mostly Fedora packages, plus a few
RPM Fusion packages, the realtime kernel from PlanetCCRMA, two scripts I
wrote and a bunch of little configuration tweaks.
2. Thanks, but I kinda want to draw the logo myself. I want to learn how
to make vector graphics. Also, I'd like to avoid complications with
selling USB drives with the logo printed on them. Even if someone
contributed a freely licensed logo, I feel it wouldn't be cool to make
money from their work without splitting some of the profit with them...
and I doubt there will be that much profit to start with.

I am familiar with this thing, "linux", and really your little distro
sounds interesting and, as I have a need for something like this for a
party coming up in two weeks, I might just try it out.
1. is it Fedora-based or are you just promoting it here based on the
2. where can I find your logo sketch? I can't make any promises, but I
know my way around inkscape.
