  1. #1

    Default New Service "My Own OS"

    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.

    And I can use the official repositories of OpenSUSE in my own commercial OS?

    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?

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

    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.
