I had entirely forgotten about this. To refresh your memory, SCO, Suse, Conectiva and Turbolinux were supposed to produce a standardized Linux. I never did understand how the little guys were supposed to distinguish themselves with that, but it all seemingly fell apart when SCO stopped selling Linux as a result of that pesky lawsuit.
Well, I think it fell apart, SCO thinks it is disbanded, and just about everyone else either agrees or thinks it's a yawner, but apparently the other three partners want to press on.
There were sensible reasons behind this effort.
