The Goal of 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 perceived gap between Fedora and RHEL.
