Hi from China,

I totally agree with Peter, because I'm in a similar case with Peter, but I'm not much a talent as him, I'm feeling shame that I'm also several years older than him.

I majored in metallurgy when I was in college, now I'm working as software engineer in multinational corporation. Interest is the best teacher for everything, I learned programming just for fun, it's much interested me.

BTW, quick questions for Peter.

Could you upload some screen shot of your stackvm? It sounds interesting, but before someone downloads/builds it, it's better to have a glance at what's going.

And you mentioned you have built several small Linux distributions for wireless routers (would fit in 1MB and 32MB). Could you write a article about how to build a general Linux distribution, something like a quick guide or steps?

Thanks in advance.

Hi brooks.

There is a guide about how to build small Linux distributions already -- it's called Linux From Scratch. You can easily build the 32mb distribution from that tutorial, but the 1mb is a bit harder. I don't have time to write about it now, but I will at some point in the future. It just involves getting rid of everything that is unnecessary.

Stackvm is all about using virtual machines easily from the web, creating virtual networks by dragging and connecting vms, etc. Screenshots are not that interesting, but we don't have a great working demo yet either. Working on it. I'll blog about it when the time has come to announce it!
