Progeny's plans could make Linux distros interchangeable

NewsForge has posted a news story on Progeny
Progeny, which calls itself "The Linux Platform Company," has made a Debian port of Red Hat's Anaconda installer. Progeny is also continuing its work on Discover, an XML-based utility that may revolutionize the way Linux detects hardware and loads kernel modules or other drivers. None of this work is immediately visible to end users, says Progeny Director of Technology John Daily, but these open source projects, and others Progeny is supporting, have the potential to make Linux easier to administer for everyone from high-end enterprise sysadmins to home users who only use their computers for simple office tasks.
