This is currently a small page about a linux distrobution that will be expanded in the next few days. Any linux distrobution should have it's own wiki page so that people who are wondering what a distobution is, they can look it up. 83.109.119.242 (talk) 19:25, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Notability[edit]

The article has been tagged for notability. I would contend that the first ref cited already established that, although more third party refs could be added. - Ahunt (talk) 17:33, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

This distro has been pretty well covered in the media, so it is easy to find refs for it. I have added three more and will remove the notability tag. - Ahunt (talk) 17:44, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
You don't seem to be using "the media" in the usual sense. References link to a blog and some Linux distribution website I had never heard about. In its current form, the article still leaves doubts about the subject's notability. --Chealer (talk) 05:58, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
It has two highly reliable sources, DistroWatch and Linux Today, plus two lesser ones. DistroWatch is reliable enough by itself to establish notability for Linux distros. How many do you want? - Ahunt (talk) 13:13, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
The tag is not about reliability, it is about notability. --Chealer (talk) 17:24, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
Sigh - reliable sources establish notability as per WP:N, which says: "If a topic has received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject, it is presumed to satisfy the inclusion criteria for a stand-alone article.". - Ahunt (talk) 20:30, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
Since it has been a week with no further discussion of this topic I will remove the tag. - Ahunt (talk) 23:44, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
