I was contacted by a local computing magazine which is aiming to
distribute a gaming distribution by December and wanted to know if I
could do a Fedora games Live CD. It has a monthly circulation of 15000
copies but due to the low cost of the magazine they can't afford to
distribute a DVD.
I could do one specifically for them but is there any interest in having
it more widely available? Is a Fedora games Live CD worth the effort?
Well, to get 15000 cd's out there, hell ya! So we need to strip the desktop to
the bone and then very carefully select games based on size.
