How to create a Linux Distro

Linux is the second most popular Operating System in the world (Actually it’s not, It’s only a kernel!) and it is completely Open-Source so anyone has right to modify or re-distribute their software. Just a Linux Kernel cannot help you do all the work, because You will need a GUI to work with, So people make Linux Distros that are useable for anyone. Linux is not like those olden days and has grown a lot since a few years. If you haven’t used a Linux Distro before let me suggest you some of the popular ones before you learn how to create one.

1. Ubuntu

2. Elementary OS

3. Zorin-OS

4. Linux Mint

5. Jolicloud

Today I’ll be showing you How to create your very own Linux Distro using SuseStudio. So how does this work? First, You have to clone a base OS (Mostly OpenSuse as shown by default) but you can head to Susegallery for more customized desktop. Once you clone a particular Operating System, You will have to choose weather you want a 32-Bit/ 64-Bit architecture, A name, Add some (default) apps to your OS and then proceed to various tabs containing different options. Watch the tutorial shown below and let me know if you have any questions.
