Worry no longer. Linuxcare, now part of TurboLinux, brings you Deltabase (www.linuxcare.com/profsvcs/deltabase/index.epl). With this subscription-based, secure Web site, you can quickly drill down to the subtleties among the different Linux distributions, from general system requirements to line-by-line differences between configuration files. Deltabase covers the major Linux distributions: Caldera, Debian, Red Hat, SuSE, TurboLinux, Corel, Mandrake, and others. Its information base is kept updated on a daily basis so you wont be surprised by unexpected changes. Its a lifesaver for identifying dependency issues across different Linux distributions.
Deltabase also lets you customize the site so that you can filter and track only those issues that matter to you, both comparing within different versions of the same vendors distribution, as well as contrasting among different vendors offerings.
