Things we all know

I haven’t tried this yet, but I love the idea: Use the Arch Linux PKGBUILDs to streamline the creation of packages in SliTaz. It’s like a graft of two of my favorite operating systems, one fast and light and the other fast and small and light.

It also suggests something small on the side: That maybe this sort of scripted package creation system — while certainly not invented by Arch — is a really great tool that ought to show up in some other, larger distributions (hint, hint). But Arch fans don’t need me saying out loud the things they already know. … ;)
