Some years ago, a little project was announced on lkml from a russian (?) firm called ASPLinux , that was already shipping a linux distrubution ,that project was named ASPcomplete.The announce went easy, and caused not much apparent interest on the ml.
Some months later the system was almost functional, and patches, sources of the userland, and even a demo virtual server was available for all from the two web sites (.ru and .sg). I dont remember exactly but i think the patches was even GPLed as required.Somewere i shall have the latest GPLed patches (against 2.4.6 IIRC)
After a brief period of openess, and regular updated of the patches, quietly nobody released more updates and eventually the directory magically disappeared.
Virtuozzo, new and polished came after.
Disclaimer: i have nothing to do with anyone involved, i'm only an interested external observer.
