    Interesting Linux movie distro project

    I was just browsing freshmeat and came across Movix, a mirco linux distro (~7MB) that can be burnt onto a CD together with your favourite divx movie and has enough software onboard (well, mainly mplayer) to boot into a linux system off that CD and play the movie.

    It comes in various flavours: movix, emovix and movix^2

    I hesitate to put this in the cool software thread because I haven't tried it yet and don't know how well it works. But it looks interesting anyways.

    Anybody tried it yet?

    This sounds pretty cool. This way you can give a friend a copy of a divx that he can watch on his box. That's cool. I might do this for my gf.
