I don't know that this will turn out to be "competition" pursee...It's just 
hopefully another option...which to me is what Linux was all about 
anyway...as the main developers tag says on the Yoper board..

" No Windows, NO Gates,
You can now go ANYWHERE you want to" 

I'm waiting to hear from the head guy there. He may not want to see that 
distro go in this direction for all I know. And they do not have a "tweaked 
kernel" other than they do use Con Kolivas patches in the 2.6.8 kernel. Guess 
it might be time for me to figure out how to do that huh? :)

Thanks but the glory is not mine! :) That's one of the awesome thing's I'm 
into with Linux...cool people typically helping cool people. I'm just trying 
to contribute somewhere. We shall see what happens.
