The UnitedLinux dark horse: Conectiva
LinuxPlanet looks at Conectiva, one of the less well known of the four UnitedLinux partners, at least in the United States. "UnitedLinux will also help Conectiva with a serious recognition problem it's been having. Many software vendors haven't been bothering to test their products with Conectiva, so there are few cases of this distribution being listed as one of those certified to run a particular package properly. Without these certifications, there are many Brazilian and Latin American clients that remain out of Conectiva's reach, specifically those who have headquarters in the United States or Europe and dictate their foreign offices' software usage."
