Tao Linux is a project to build a free Linux distribution from the sources used in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux product line.

The target market is either experienced system administrators who would like freely available binaries of this code, or end users who are interested in experimenting with enterprise functionality.

Besides being mostly compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, it also includes software packages such as Eclipse and clustering tools not found in the base RHEL products.

Here are some key features of "Tao Live CD":
Yum used for updates
Based on commercially produced 'Enterprise' sources
Many packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux also run on Tao Linux
Free as in speech and beer
Security updates (in SRPM form, at least) available for seven years.
