I don't really understand what the offer is.
"AVG's AMI consists of a hardened Debian Linux operating system
with AVG's pre-configured anti-virus technology which can be
launched, ready for use, as rapidly as any other instance on
So this is a copy of Debian with proprietary software preinstalled?
Is it just a package (I assume not, as a sources.list.d file and an
apt-get doesn't seem hard enough to be a useful offer), or have they
modified other stuff?
Anyway, I think that's independent of being business-friendly. There
are plenty of fine 100% free (as in freedom) business lines. I'd be
disappointed to see the debian project promote an AVG suck-in and I
would expect the project to attract a lot of flame for promoting it.
