Linux International   Linux International
The release of UnitedLinux Version 1.0 demonstrates the value of making development a planned, cooperative event. Rather than spend their money re-engineering the basic underlying functionalities of assembling a reliable, scalable and available distribution, these four vendors built a common platform upon which to innovate new features that their customers desire. Once again the Linux community has come back with a unique answer for the pundits' skepticism. UnitedLinux Version 1.0 should give a strong base distribution that will satisfy the needs of the software vendor for consistency and the hardware vendor for support, yet allow differentiation to meet the needs of diverse customers.
- Jon "maddog" Hall, Executive Director of Linux International
NEC offers its congratulations to UnitedLinux upon the completion of Version 1.0 according to schedule, and believes the new distribution will be useful for Linux users, developers and system integrators who are related to enterprise systems.
