From Practical-tech.com: "Some Linux fans are pooh-poohing this announcement as not being that big a deal. They're dead wrong. While it won't make much difference to consumer Linux-United Linux (UL), a pure business operating system play, completely changes the Linux business landscape.
Why? Because at long last OEMs, like IBM and HP, and more importantly independent software vendors (ISV)s will need to work with, at most, two Linux versions-the other being Red Hat- instead of the five major versions they must deal with today. That will save these companies a bundle of application porting money."
