Finally finish my own linux distro: Minux

I have been working on my own linux distro for a while. It is not from complete scratch. I do not know how long it would take to make my own C compiler. I have used open source packages and combined them together to make my distro.I did my work in VMware player so I did not need 2 computers. It made it easier as well because I could suspend my work and return back to it with out having to setup everything again. if you use a physical computer then when you shut down it is a bit of work to arrive to same point in the setup. I would suggest completing the project in vmware to save time.
You can make you own distro too. If you follow my link on this page you can have your own linux machine up and running in a few days.
