"Linux.com: What is the concept behind Aduva?"

"The motto "Release early, release often" seems to have a corollary that people take for granted: "Update a lot". In the Linux world, that goes for kernel, hardware drivers, and most important, packages."

"The Linux newbie, and the experienced administrator are then faced with the option of "if it is working don't touch it" or to go all the way down to the many dependencies which a single package may have. Hardware installation, sometimes, is also far from trivial, requiring rebuilds of modules, creation of device files, and so on. Kernel compilation to a specific box can also be a challenge for some people."

"The concept behind Aduva is to shield newbie users from all the headaches, and let them concentrate on using the system and extracting from it as much as possible. Expert and Intermediate users are benefiting from our Kernel compilation and from our knowledge base, which is a major time saving feature for procedures that every Linux user is faced with. We achieve those goals by serving a single interface to the entire system, with enough granularity in the automation process to serve all levels of users, from my mom to any guru."
