Review: Libranet Linux 2.8

The new Libranet distro is looking good.
I have to say that, even though Libranet 2.8 is loaded with great features, the number one coolest feature is the option in the AdminMenu to recompile the kernel. This is not a new feature to 2.8, but I'll tell you it has got to be the biggest time saver for the veteran Linux user who likes to tweak their kernel. With a click of a button, I can bring up menuconfig and change whatever kernel settings I like, and then recompile without ever having to type things like make dep, make modules, cp arch/i386.... blah blah blah. You know the routine. I'm not saying that this is difficult, but this feature in Libranet makes compiling your kernel seem like making a font selection in OpenOffice.org... that simple.
