Very inspiring article.

Will definitely give a try to create customised Ubuntu based on this article.

Over years I am following a different method of customising Ubuntu DVD and let me confess that this method is rather simple for a novice.

Steps 1.

Install ubuntu on your system.

Add / Delete packages of your choice.

Recommended Packages to Add : GIPM, Java, Unrestricted Extras, Cheese, PHP, Apache, Mysql, phpmyadmin, Virtual Box, VLC, Chromium. ssh, wine, skype, Ubuntu tweaks, wireshark, zenmap so on and so forth.

Recommended Packages to Delete : Default Games ( Based on individual Choices) and other unwanted things.

Visit - and install remastersys

read the documentation and run the remastersys and create iso based on the installed system. The created iso will be saved in /hom/remastersys directory. You can even include your own logo / screen on install DVD with remastersys.

Its simple and asks for minimum terminal based commands and can be tried even by novice.

Inspiring? Eh.

It's good that there's information out there for Ubuntu, but it's not necessarily new. Fedora has had a "make your own spin" tutorial out there for some time -- and go to the bottom where it says something like "create your own spin."
