Ooh. First post. We'll see how it goes. As far as I know, a Linux Distro is simply the desktop visible with the GUI part of linux. If anyone could clarify that, because I want to get a good linux for my Macbook, and I also want to design my own Desktop, with stuff like custom pull outs for programs, and I also want to simply be able to add onto and take away widgets and programs from the desktop at will.

Could anyone clarify "distro" and tell me how to design one?

Well, a linux "distro" is jargon for a linux distribution. And no, a distro is not the GUI, it is everything not including the kernel (core of all linux distros). The thing that changes between distros is: Internal program handling, package management, and window manager (GUI or "X"). there really isn't a need for creating a distro, because there are plenty out there, with all the customization you could want (the only thing you cant really change is the kernel). Try this site for help on choosing the perfect distro: -->> click heer! <<--

Note: The "type" of linux is usually described by the window manager used (Gnome, KDE, etc..)

Also welcome to the forum! You should introduce yourself in the Hello/Goodbye forum!
