What is Linux?

Linux is a multi-user, multi-tasking operating system that interoperates well with other operating systems, including Windows, NetWare and MacOS. It supports a wide range of software, including X Windows, Emacs, TCP/IP networking. Benchmarks of Linux have shown comparable results with mid-range workstations from Sun and Digital.

Designed for Stability and Performance

OpenLinux is the Linux distribution that meets the requirements for business. As opposed to a simple collection of packages, OpenLinux is completely "self-hosted." That means each build of OpenLinux includes the Linux kernel and other Linux packages. A self-hosted system increases system performance, uses less hard disk space, eliminates library conflicts, and lets advanced users re-build the system with their custom changes included. Business workstations demand proven, tested, stable, and supported operating systems. That's why OpenLinux is "Linux for Business."

The three CDs include:

2.2.10 Linux kernel; Multi-user; Multi-tasking; glibc 2.1.1 (and libc 5 for backwards compatibility); PalmPilot-capable
