Yes, this would be a very good thing.  I think e-Linux, Linnet, and SEUL
could (and should!) share the same underlying distribtion, and can share
the majority of the software and tools.

I will attempt to contact Linnet and e-Linux leaders and propose this
solution, as a way to decrease the total amout of work needed.  I think
this trio of products, if all similar enough to each other, could
obliterate the competition.  Consider the following mapping:

Win95   -> SEUL
WinNT   -> e-Linux
backend -> Linnet

If we can coordinate all this in one release, sharing all the resources we
have, we could do some serious damage to M$.

I'll e-mail the leaders of e-Linux and Linnet to see what they think.
