UnitedLinux set to unveil 'Linux for business'

"What Red Hat is doing is taking the box, charging $600 (£380) more and saying, 'Now you can call us for 12 months'," Blapp said. "The product is almost the same, not 100 per cent, but very close." With SuSE's enterprise server, and UnitedLinux, much more resources have been sunk into customising the software the way that hardware vendors such as IBM and HP want it to be, he said.

Blapp said that UnitedLinux members have all now agreed to use practically the same software, down to the installation and configuration tool - which will be SuSE's Yast2."
