I'm doing a college research paper over Linux!! I've learned quite a bit about Linux and at the same time made school work fun!

Linux is pretty broad, do you have a particular area you are gonna focus on?

I would do it over the history of GNU/Linux and how they came to be.

There is a time line chart out there that shows the different distros and where they all came from. it's pretty neat. I just can't remember where I saw it at now.

How about that I found it. It's not up to date as you will see, but it's a visual time line that is still interesting.

Does anyone know what year RR64 came out and what year its name was changed to Sabayon. Oh, and some links to some screenshots to Sabayon would be great! I'd love to use them in my Research paper if Lxnay doesn't mind. I'm hoping to use this research paper to win some people to linux, and not just any linux.......... Sabayon!
