FOSS.IN Live Blogging Day 1: Distribution Constructors

Anil Gulecha, a final year engineering student held the audience in rapt attention as he talked about Distribution Constructor. Distro constructor is a part of the OpenSolaris binary distribution. It is a set of tools that allows user to roll their own distributions based on OpenSolaris.

Anil is a Sun student tech lead. When he created the LiveUSB toolkit for BeleniX as a third year engineering student, he had the world looking at him :-)
