    Cool Other OS on the raspberry Pi

    Is anybody planning to use another Linux OS (other than Fedora, Ubuntu, Arch or Debian) on Raspberry Pi?

    I'd be very interested to see how something like an ARM version of something like Puppy would run on one of these little beasties

    Yep!

    Planning on trying to get Gentoo up and running on it.
    DISTCC so there can be some realistic compile times for it too.

    Nice, just googled DISTCC.
    I thought it was going to be a Gentoo DIST with Compact Code or something equally slim, not a compilation method.

    Thumbs up DISTCC

    The best thing with DISTCC is the ability to list only other machines for the compiling (my flatmate and I learnt this the humorous way). If you don't list the IP address of the RasPi then it sits back and lets everyone else do the work.
    It'll be nice to have an excuse to get it installed again...
