Submitted by mpapet
mpapet (761907) writes "A Linux distribution called Pioneer Linux distributed by TechAlign Inc. may be the first ever to claim that Linux can be pirated. The Pioneer Linux distro boldly declares As a business, you should purchase a copy of Pioneer and not pirate it.

Their announcement of a new re-branded Ubuntu distro on distrowatch.org states, " commercial establishments will be required to purchase a copy...". See the distrowatch.org announcement."
