From LXF Wiki
I think this is now officially dead Jim ;-)
There seems to be some sort of hiaitus on this and Gordon(gurgs) has withdrawn from the project. Hopefully we will get going on this in the New Year

What's happening here then? Shame this has been abandoned as it was a good idea. Anybody wishing to work on this as I am certainly prepared to put some hours in resume writing service (http://www.resumewritingservice.biz/services/).

Linux Format Community Linux Distribution (LXFC Distro) started on 29 August 2005 with an online chat #lxfc @ irc.oftc.net.
The people present were Erin, Dick (towy71), Mike Saunders (M-Saunders), Nigel (nigel), samrad, Gordon (gurgs) and Steve Olive (ollie).
The basic idea behind this distribution is for the education of all participants on all of the stages and processes of a software project. It was decided in the leadup discussions that, where possible, non-mainstream applications would be used. This means the Operating System would be run successfully on older systems currently being discarded around the world (PI/PII 233 MHz CPU, 64 MB RAM, 4 MB VGA, 4 GB HDD). The finished distribution should have all required software on a single CD.
The basic software requirements are bash, text editor, word processor, web browsers (text and GUI), GUI environment (NOT KDE or Gnome) and networking.

The important thing is making clear instructive documentation, this is important for both the project and making it useful for LXF!
I feel this should just be published as is , at the moment only us have access! Dick

We want a useable and scaleable OS that allows those involved to learn and document the process for the benefit of others. LXFC will allow some people to learn and give back to the community a little. LXFC is not about compromise but making something that works and offers a viable alternative to other distros, such as non-usual applications, a parallel CLI and GUI system clearly commented and documented so others can jump in and modify the base we deem to be a release. The hope is to extend the project to PPC and Live ports but for now, the project is in its infancy. Light eXtensible Fast Configurable (LXFC).
