New service idea.

-Project title:- My Own OS
-Assignment:- Create your own Linux distribution based on OpenSUSE

All trademarks automatically deleted or previously removed.
There is an opportunity to automatically add own copyrights and
trademarks.
OSmakers can use the official repositories in their own OS.
All can be used for any commerce.

Do it please.

And your point is?

SUSE Studio can already do this. Create your appliance, replace the
openSUSE branding and off you go.

Hi
You probably need to look at what the balsam folks did, AFAIK they use
their own OBS instance, but would assume the pull from the openSUSE
repositories. You probably need to ask on the openSUSE Project Mailing
List.

Also, removing "all trademarks".... the openSUSE brand is present in every
RPM in its info section. You may want to better define what "all
trademarks" really means and what value will come (both to you as well as
openSUSE folks) by removing them. Currently removing them all should be
just fine, but it means that you will no longer want any updates since the
updates from openSUSE will include those trademarks again.

So you mean I need to create the distribution from scratch?

Sounds like a college assignment

I think you must be joking... "from scratch" to me means that you pull
flour, eggs, baking soda, vanilla, water, oil, and chocolate and end up
with a cake. You're not starting with zeroes and ones, or even just a
text editor and trying to recreate an entire operating system
distribution. In the worst case, you're starting with gigabytes of free
code that is tested, compiled, and basically ready to go, and changing
every single package so that it no longer has trademarks or branding. If
that's "from scratch", then yeah, probably, and it's a pretty good deal
all things considered.

It may be useful to know that there are entire businesses behind doing
this kind of thing, and they do it to make money. Doing it on your own is
certainly possible, but it may be interesting to know what you consider
the value added is by doing so rather than just taking the openSUSE code
as it and changing out splash screens to be your own.

At the end of the day you're going to sell this on its own or as part of
something else and make money, right? If so, this process should be
adding value to offset the cost of the change. If not, though, this
process should have enough value to you personally to offset the cost in
time and effort. If it doesn't, but you still want a completely
brand-less OS, then your "scratch" is that you need to start from code
outside of distributions and pull it all together to make something
happen, but you will be, individually, doing what entire companies are
already doing to give it your own brand (or lack of brand) and that cost,
to you at least, must be justified. Gentoo Linux may be for you, though
even that has branding.

Good luck.

You seem to have misunderstood the purpose of open source projects -
everyone can get involved. It's not a bad idea, you should start a
project to do it. :)

It looked like you were demanding that someone "do this". I was
suggesting that you do more than just request it - that you perhaps start
a project, organize it, and such.

There's more to getting involved than just suggesting/proposing an idea.
Open source works because people do stuff, not because people ask for
stuff. Find some like-minded individuals and start a project to do this,
or talk to the openSUSE project team about creating a derivative. There
are a couple projects that do this already.
