    Looks cool but you need to get an invite to use it.

    Can't you do the same with Arch, or Crux, or Linux From Scratch? Pick what you want installed, and keep out the clutter.

    It looks very intriguing, I'll keep my eye on this.

    You can, but this appears to be a much easier solution because you can make a custom version of SUSE without even installing anything on your own systems. Its similar in a way to rBuilder used by rPath.

    Yes, but the difference is that you don't need to fiddle around with package lists and chroot environments and compressing / uncompressing images. And it appears that you can actually test your distro directly from the Suse Studio server via VNC before you download the ISO or other image. And for those who have slow internet connections like me, this would be a big help, because you don't have to download individual package dependencies to your system to put the image together, it all happens online.

    I hope this all works as well as advertised. I'm still waiting an invitation too, but it'll eventually leave alpha stage and open up to the public.
