I used LFS to create the bootstrap for WIMP OS which is the start of an attempt to create a Linux-kernel-using operating system inspired by Acorn's RISC OS using lots of relocatable ROX AppDirs and, in future Zero Install etc.
At the moment it's only something you can chroot into, but it should be *almost* bootable.
LFS made it relatively straight forward, though. Having said that, it's worrying the number of little patches that the LFS instructions say need applying to the upstream source: why aren't they included upstream already?
