Hah! SuSE is the best distro :-)

Anyhow, to the point - Castle has not got a distribution (contrary to what the article says). What they have is a kernel (how much is included in this kernel?). A distro is a *lot* more than that. And a lot of work, compiling and testing everything. A kernel by itself isn't a whole lot of use, unfortunately. If Castle can put a distro together, that would be great - at the least, they could include a Debian sources disk and a gcc binary.
