Linux Distribution: White Box
Url: http://www.whiteboxlinux.org/

 
This product is derived from the Free/Open Source Software made available by Red Hat, Inc but IS NOT produced, maintained or supported by Red Hat.

About White Box
Specifically, this product is forked from the source code for Red Hat's _Red Hat Enterprise Linux_ products under the terms and conditions of its EULA.

What is the goal for White Box Linux?
To provide an unencumbered RPM based Linux distribution that retains enough compatibility with Red Hat Linux 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.

Or more briefly, to fill the gap between Fedora and RHEL.
