Apparently, 117 isn't enough for this guy, who's used grub (the LILO successor) to round out his boot-loading screen. I know Linux is cool and all, but does anyone reeeeally need ninety-plus distros of it? :)

How often does he use each? Most distros are really similair with minor changes like package management and file system layout.

Some people have too much time to devote to their obsessive compulsive hobbies.

At least having that many distros would be more useful than building this RAID setup. [wink]

Like I said, I doubt he uses the majority of them on a regular basis. It's more of a "hey, that's nifty" thing than an actual setup that anyone would use (at least, you'd hope so!).

That's awesome! Nothing like backing up everything to floppy... ;)
