Thunderworx Linux v1.0

In a few hours I will release my distribution of Red Hat Linux. Please visit my ftp for the iso image, patch to the anaconda runtimes, my comps version, and the tool for creating distributions.

  1. There were a few users, I remember. But since it was mostly an internal development for Thunderworx, I don’t think there were ever more than a 100 users outside.

    The distribution itself was heavily based on Red Hat Linux (7.1, if I remember correctly). It was changed to fit on the single CD and bring only the stuff that we cared about – SMP kernel, KDE desktop, Open Office, Evolution with MS Exchange integration, Exim, latest updates, and stuff like that. I remember I had to patch Red Hat installer (Anaconda), which was my first experience with Python. I also wrote a few build scripts, which were later replaced by the community built tools. It was a fun experience altogether.
