The UnitedLinux Dark Horse: Conectiva
Who Are They, And What Do They Bring to the Table?
If you watch Linux-related news, then for the last few weeks it's been hard to do anything without running into pronouncements about UnitedLinux. UnitedLinux is certainly a curious beast, a kind of Tuxed-out Cerberus with four heads, where more might sprout out at any moment. Let's move through some of the hype and guesswork and take a look at one of the lesser-known heads--at least, lesser-known in English-speaking Linux markets.
Conectiva is a Latin American Linux distribution from Brazil that aims primarily at the Spanish and Portuguese speaking audience. If you've taken a close look at the UnitedLinux partners, you'll notice that this project is definitely a worldwide effort, with distributions specializing in a variety of languages and geographical areas (SuSE is ultimately a German distribution, and TurboLinux focuses heavily on the Asian market).
Let's take a look at what Conectiva brings to the effort, and hopes to get out of it.
