Asianux was a Linux distribution. It is a joint development between Linux vendors Red Flag Software of China, Miracle Linux of Japan (50.5-percent owned by Oracle Corporation), Hancom of South Korea, VietSoftware of Vietnam (from September 2007), WTEC from Thailand (from December 2008)[1] and Enterprise Technology (Pvt) Limited of Sri Lanka (from July 2010). It is distributed and marketed by Red Flag Software and Miracle. Asianux is designed as a core component or basis for a Linux distribution, which would be released by related companies as their own distributions with distinct features. Localized languages include Chinese, Japanese, Korean and English. Comparisons have been drawn between Asianux and United Linux, an attempt by SUSE, Turbolinux, Conectiva and the SCO Group to take on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.[2]
