We are looking at various distros to create a project. However, our vision is a little out of the mainstream, and we are also mostly amateurs who dont know how to maintain our own packages or fix things on a system level. A few of us do, but they have experience with Slackware and I mostly used Mint.
We are looking for a distro that is the total swiss army knife for political activists, including media activists who are in war zones around the world. The idea is to combine 3 separate types of distros into 1.....Think Puredyne/Dynebolic + Tinfoil Hat/Tails + Backtrack or Pentoo. We want Anonymous media-activism with added hacker tools.
However, it looks like we need to learn more before we can pull it off. I could probably do it in Ubuntu by customizing my desktop then taking a snapshot, then using Unebootin or installation disk creation, but there are problems with that way of doing it.
