A test version of a 'free Linux' product intended to give corporate customers the utility of Red Hat Linux but not its price tag, is set for release at the start of September

Beta 1 of UserLinux will be released on 1 September, according to UserLinux founder and open-source advocate Bruce Perens in a talk at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in San Francisco. "UserLinux is enterprise Linux without the big price tag," said Perens.

UserLinux has made some progress on its support plan, rounding up a "small stable" of partners to join a planned group of certified companies. But progress in another key area - getting software partners to certify their products to work with the no-cost UserLinux - isn't satisfactory yet, Perens said.

Red Hat, the dominant seller of Linux, requires its customers to purchase a separate support subscription for each server using the software. And while Linux itself can be downloaded for free, Red Hat charges $299 per server per year for support and updates.
