Debian for the Enterprise!

Sources close to Mandriva, Progeny and Turbolinux say the trio of companies will be announcing a new enterprise Linux distribution based on Debian Linux at the LinuxWorld event in San Francisco in August.

“Basically the objective is to produce a distro that can act like Debian, use the Debian repository, but any Red Hat engineer should be comfortable with it,” the vendor said.

“It will have a nice, Web-based front end for service management, which Sarge lacks,” the vendor added. “It's basically oriented toward edge-of-the-network type applications, such as ISP software.”
