I work for a company that will likely be interested in getting involved in the development of this free enterprise distro. This is right inline with what we've been thinking is the ideal solution for our Linux distro needs.
How many of you think this is something that would gain traction in the community?
The 2 problems I see with it being based on debian is:
1) its lack of native RPM support (aka the unfortunate LSB package format of choice).
2) Getting other commercial software providers to certify their products against a non-RedHat/non-SuSe "enterprise" distro.
Aside from that debian is ideal for such a distro.
