http://www.opengroup.org/openbrand/bpl/ Your options for certified UNIX seem to be Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, OS X and Inspur K-UX. WTF is Inspur K-UX?

That is really interesting: http://beta.slashdot.org/submission/3145593/unix-03-certifie...

Rebranded RHEL?

That is interesting. If true, it would be the first GNU/Linux derived OS to achieve UNIX(™) compatibility. Whether Linux distributions could trivially be made compatible has been a hypothetical debate so far ("nobody wants to pay the licensing fees.") It would be big news to see that borne out. Hopefully more details will become available.

Lasermoon Linux was the first POSIX certified distro:

For Linux distros they are either too small to be certified, or too large to care for it anymore.

Red Hat Linux was certified UNIX sometime in 5.x days, IIRC.
