Hi. I have the ISO for ubuntu 9.10 (Official, Alpha, all that) and I want to customize it. Meaning like, KDE, WINE, Latest OpenOffice, all pre-installed. Is there any way to do this? I have Windows and Mac on my Mac, so, either OS is supported. Mac Prefered, but Windows works.

Thanks!!!

I think you will have to install all the packages you want on a base install then make a livecd of the install you did.

Try this: http://linuxowns.wordpress.com/2008/01/08/...or-mint-system/ I am not sure how it works, but I would give it a whirl.

Thanks a lot! Now I can make a Kubuntu distro that has everything my friends need, so I can switch them from Windows.

Don't worry, they all have Vista or 7. Difference between Vista/7 Desktop and Kubuntu KDE Desktop: NONE. Why? Because Microsoft is a bunch of idea stelaing pigs.

THere is a difference WIndows GUI is much more responsive then KDE. The latest versions of KDE are so slow in comparison and are RAM Hogs. It was bogging down my P4 3Ghz with 2Gigs of RAM and a XFX 6800 GT Video Card. I switched to GNOME which is far more superior to KDE and on par with responsiveness as is the Windows GUI. Its just not me that notices this behavior its quite a few linux users I know.

I've found KDE faster than Windows XP, but Mac is much faster. Do you want the distro I'm making?
