I'll shortly be announcing the public availability of Pynux... :-)

Seriously, though, I can see the sense in having 'live' CD distros
specialised for antivirus (or general rescue/sysadmin work), video
conferencing and stuff like that, but what would be the reasoning for
a Python specific distro, or indeed any special development needs? To
me it seems that a general-purpose distro with whatever development
tools the individual programmer needs is going to be a perfect fit.
Any specialised development distro sounds like specialisation for its
own sake to me.
