Pie Box Enterprise Linux 4 is a Linux distribution aimed at people who need a stable OS with a long lifespan but don't want an expensive bundled support contract. It is derived from open source software with only four packages modified in order to replace trademarks and logos with our own. Features of Pie Box Enterprise Linux 4 include the Linux 2.6 kernel, SELinux, GNOME 2.8, Samba 3.0, Logical Volume Manager 2, PCI Express support and NFSv.4.

PixExcel, based in the United Kingdom, recognized the demand for enterprise quality Linux software that does not come bundled with an expensive support contract. This led to the release of Pie Box Enterprise Linux 3 AS back in April 2004. Since then PixExcel has been supplying a growing client base ranging from the home enthusiast to multi-million pound corporations. These clients share one thing in common - they demand a quality product but are sufficiently skilled to operate it without the expense of a support contract.
