...that will enable you to focus on your own stuff and not on funding or licensing of IT systems.
This will be available as a PXE live boot from NetLinux Server DVD
or a Live CD and will have the tools to be administered from NetLinux Desktops
These guys are worth a mention.

This is based on the lightweight but powerful and highly configurable KDE3 Trinity Desktop
This is the nearest Linux equivalent to the very popular Windows XP desktop.
You can use the Trinity Desktop in your own Ubuntu installation from NetLinux:
wget http://www.netlinux.org.uk/uploads/trinity.asc -O - |sudo apt-key add -
echo 'deb http://trinity.netlinux.org.uk/trinity-v3.5.13/ubuntu oneiric main' >/etc/apt/sources.list.d/trinity.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y kubuntu-desktop-trinity

Netlinux from scratch
AKA Femto Netlinux
A new distribution building on RedHat and Debian based systems with a new package deployment based on self-extracting binaries.
Check it out here
Netlinux is not just about creating a distribution, but also about coding applications.
Self-serve free websites
Working on a financial network, one of the biggest challenges is performance of the network.
This requires a forensic packet level diagnostic ability.
These guys are producing loads of virtual appliances and live distros
A backup cloud host is online and sites are being restored.
The main host is being upgraded to improve maintenance and hopefully prevent failures.
This week the cloud host for NetLinux had a major hardware failure.
Sites are still being recovered.
Working on financial networks it seems there is a gap in the market for a highly resilient network using redundancy.
I am looking to design this and make it available as soon as practical.
It'll be tested on a financial network and the details will be published.
I am working on a new deployment in my "day job" for a Linux-based network sniffer unit.
So I might as well start on NetLinux as the basis so everyone can share in this.
