Linux's '31 Flavors of Fun' Project: 19 Distros and Counting

Linux

Fans of Linux may recall the “31 Flavors of Fun” project I wrote about last month through which ambitious developer Todd Robinson planned to “create, and release, a complete desktop operating system each and every day for the period of 31 days” over the course of August.
