Interview with the creators of CRUX and ROOTLinux
Author: JT Smith
Prot writes: "Linux is much more than (the highly marketed) Red Hat or Mandrake. Assuming you got the skills required, a Linux distribution can be created, distributed or sold by anyone. This is what Free Software is all about anyway. Two Swedish Linux coders are offering their own, home-brewed Linux distros for some months now (with newer versions on the way). Per LidÃ©n has put together CRUX from scratch, while John Eriksson has evolved a lightweight Slackware version to his own ROOTLinux. OSNews interviews both the developers regarding their (part-time/hobby) projects and their future prospects."
