UnitedLinux Readies First Public Showing

UnitedLinux said on Wednesday that it would release a preview version of its business-oriented Linux distribution to the public in the last week of September, the first chance most potential customers will have to evaluate the results of the combined effort. UnitedLinux is based on SuSE Linux’s enterprise server, but the public beta will reveal how technology has been integrated from the group’s other three partners: Turbolinux, Conectiva and The SCO Group (formerly Caldera). Version 1.0 of the distribution is expected in November.
