from distrowatch :



UserLinux is a GNU/Linux distribution based from Debian, but streamlined to a smaller set of default applications. The UserLinux variants (server, desktop, etc.) will be freely available in both source and ISO formats. Application specifics are being worked out right now. The desktop environment will be GNOME featuring OpenOffice.org for word processing. The server configuration will include Apache and Postfix. UserLinux will be complemented by a network of service providers offering certification, support, and professional services.


I haven't tried it.

It's a subset of debian testing (crurrently debian unstable).

Do you guys think it could become a partner of Ubuntu ?

Bruce has indicated that he would like to remain separate, and that's fine. UserLinux is currently a selection of unmodified packages from Debian sarge with the stock Debian installer, and their intention is to build an ISV community around it, effectively. Thus, we think Ubuntu is currently far more advanced in our goals than UserLinux -- indeed, having achieved everything they have, and far, far more.
