This week's LWN Distributions page

Author: JT Smith

It's at LWN.net, of course. Among the items: "LWN received an announcement for the
'Common Linux Installer Group,' an organization which is trying to develop a
standard, GPL-licensed installer for Linux distributions. The group is being
supported by the folks at Blue Linux.

Normally LWN is all in favor of standards and this is, in fact, no exception.
Nonetheless, we think it is doomed to failure. Why? Because the installation
procedure is a stamp of individuality for many of the leading distributions."
