I hope you will forgive the cross-post, but I thought the following would be
of interest.  I've edited for length, find the originals as cited in the cAos
list archives: http://caosity.org/pipermail/caos/.

cAos-1 (my project) will probably have a network based installer and live
ISO's by mid November.

cAos-2 will be several weeks after the release of cAosEL-2.

cAosEL-1 was never actually pressed into a distributable form, rather used
just for internal building.

cAosEL-2 may be in about 2-3 weeks (Rocky can speak more defiantly on this).

Please keep in mind that these are projections, also known as guesses.

If you want, you can install cAos-1 now (but you should be warned it is not
streamlined yet, nor static. To test install:

About 80% done with the first build. If there's no huge problems, I should
have everything built && rebuilt towards the end of the week. Give me another
week to replace the legals and rebuild installers and make CD's, and I should
be able to put up a test release.

Hopefully at this time people can compare it with RHEL3 and note any
differences, especially in [dependencies].

You used to have to reboot the Windows 9.x series every couple of days
because it would crash.  Now you have to reboot Windows 200x or XP every
couple of days because of a patch.  How is that better or more stable?
