I already suggested to Walnut Grove that they make a CD-ROM of Linux.
They're quite receptive to the idea.
But, that's going to need two things: a reasonably stable version of
Linux, plus CD-ROM support. And, to make it all really whizzy, make
a read-only filesystem that can be patched. That way, CD-ROM updates
can be made that go onto your hard disk.
But first, we need a *release* of Linux. You know, one that doesn't
change every other day...
I'm quite receptive to the idea of paying someone to do this release.
It's hard, grungy work, unlike programming. Now, there are probably
1,000 hard-core Linux users. If just 50 of them put up 100 bucks,
that would easily pay a college student's summer job.
