DistroWatch.com has it listed as one, should I argue with them?
23rd on the page hit list.
I guess it's all on how you view it. When someone asks what distro
I'm running, I don't say "Jim's", but "Linux From Scratch" so they can
also try it out. "Jim's" does have a kind of ring to it though. 8=))
If it wasn't for LFS, there would be no Jim's, distro or not.
