I'll do an install on my noddy box, it does seem interesting though,
a-la RHEL without the ... exorbatant costs involved.

To provide an unencumbered RPM based Enterprise Linux distribution that
retains enough compatibility with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (version 3
and beyond) to allow easy upgrades and to retain compatibility with
their Errata srpms. Being based off of RHEL3 means that a machine should
be able to avoid the upgrade treadmill until Oct 2008 since RHEL
promises Errata availability for five years from date of initial release
and RHEL3 shipped in Oct 2003.
Which does indeed seem nice and more to the point, won't have people
hating me after I leave, if I deploy this on 'most/all' of our Red Hat
I suppose the case for moving to WhiteBox (aka non-commercially
supported Linux) would be much greater, if I can point out that all the
closed-source binary-only toys management want to run 'going forward'
should also run on WhiteBox...
 Yes, I did just say that... no... I don't feel clean.
