Suse Studio - Build and test your own Linux online

One problem with downloading Linux to use for testing and building C++ is that all the Linux servers deliver distrubutions that are made for users, packed with lots of programs but no decent IDE or GCC, and certainly not properly configured.

So I found this online Linux distribution building tool at which allows you to build and then run your own Linux, either 32 bit or 64 bit, with KDE, Gnome, XFCE or other window managers, and it allows you to build to a disk image, Live CD, and various virtual machine images.

All you have to do is register free at and you can start building right away, with all the files and options stored online, it's all done through the browser.

But please note, this is just a fallback solution for those looking for a very specific flavor of Linux and not something I would recommend if you just want to watch movies, listen to music or check the email, for that try Puppy Linux or FatDog64 if you have a 64 bit ready computer.
