Impi Linux focuses on migration

Filed under
Linux

In a presentation to press and potential partners yesterday, Impi Linux – predominantly owned by Mark Shuttleworth – previewed some of the expected features of its next distribution. While the new Impi will be based on Ubuntu Dapper Drake, it will not be constricting itself to pure open source and free packages, with StarOffice and Crossover Office expected to be included for an easy migration path from Windows to Linux.

According to Ross Addis of Impi Linux, the next versions of its localised Ubuntu distribution will be divided into "Premium" and "Business Class", keeping with Impi's current aeroplane marketing messaging. Business class includes a desktop version, a SME server, and a terminal server.
