I knew this is a joke when I read that all Suse will add to the project is a subjective attribute of their community. I had my puzzled 5min though :-D

I thought Arch was supported by illuminati members when I saw Canterbury frontpage.
This is not funny!

Re: The Canterbury Project

I kinda like arch the way it is. Already free software stands up pretty good it's just that proprietary brands are a whole lot more advertised, therefore more known. For example I never knew about OpenOffice until I've installed linux and started to play along with it,searching for the right software that suits me.

For me it was a shock when I've seen for the first time that OOffice is just as good as the MS products and GIMP is almost as good as PhotoShop. Why ? , because I never knew that there are more than competent alternatives for software you usually have to pay. About 7 years ago I was convinced that free software mostly resumes to something lame and poorly developed, that you can't use for an actual serious business or work. After I've tried linux the way I was seeing things dramatically changed.

I believe this happens only because corporations developing proprietary products spend a whole lot of money every year only in advertising, making  their products more known. So I really don't see how a Canterbury distro will make linux more known unless somehow affords spending milions of $ every year in this kind of advertising campaigns.


I've first installed Arch in March

He he. It looks more like some sort of a brotherhood of the ring linux edition. I wonder which one will assume the role of smeagol. Just joking, the general idea is nice. I just don't believe it until I see it happen with my own eyes.

I was wondering who would post first such a thing :-) It's a pity that I'm at work now so not able to see what's inside this package. will have to wait 'til this evening. Anyway, this is already quite fun

See "cant help" for usage.

...can't help, duh!
