As I see it, UserLinux would differ from Debian only in ways needed for a corporate head to be able to dig into it. That means guaranteed support, ports for proprietary systems to Debian architecture, and so on..
Progeny does much of the same, but from a different basis.

UserLinux isn't meant to gain revenue as a product, but as a base for services.
That's what make things different.

But there already exist Linux distros and service companies that do all this now. They are, in many cases, already into multiple version numbering. What will UserLinux provide that will be different from the existing for-profit and not-for-profit (as opposed to non-profit) distros/companies are doing right now? I'm not against more distros but I do not see any value in starting something from scratch when the end result will just be a duplicate of things already happening.
