Perhaps the coolest thing of all would be to have a Mdk fan bring in a
mandrake box, a Gentoo fan bring in a Gentoo box, and Suse fan, a Debian fan,
etc. They'd all be the same to set up, but that way, we could kinda split
into smallish groups, and each distro would demo their way. They'd all be
the same, so the repetition would help the ideas sink in, but they'd all be
slightly different, so each person could see how it would look on their own
preferred distro. We need a bunch of different boxes anyway, so it they
might as well be different distros.
The only thing to worry about would be matching GCCs.
