Linux Industry leaders Caldera International, Inc., Conectiva S.A., SuSE Linux AG, and Turbolinux, Inc., announced the organization of UnitedLinux, a new initiative that will streamline Linux development and certification around a global, uniform distribution of Linux designed for business. UnitedLinux addresses enterprise customers' need for a standard, business-focused Linux distribution that is certified to work across hardware and software platforms, accelerating the adoption of Linux in the enterprise. Under terms of the agreement, the four companies will collaborate on the development of one common core Linux operating environment, called UnitedLinux software. The four partners will each bundle value added products and services with the UnitedLinux operating system and the resulting offering will be marketed and sold by each of the four partners under their own brands.
?We firmly believe that UnitedLinux, a common Linux distribution, will be a terrific benefit to customers around the world working through their transition to Linux,?
said James P. Curtin, President and CEO of NeTraverse. ?It?s very much in sync with NeTraverse?s own commitment to its customers to make transition to Linux as seamless as possible.?
