DesktopLinux.com interviews Redmond Linux CEO

Dec 04, 2001, 14:45 (13 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Rick Lehrbaum)
RL: What is *unique* about Redmond Linux? i.e., how does it differ from other popular distributions such as, for example, Red Hat, SuSE, and Mandrake?
Cheek: We cater to Windows users in a way that will help them to feel at ease while using Redmond Linux. We offer to help them ease slowly and relatively painlessly into Linux, and are willing to hold their hands when needed. We have task-oriented menus, and we include only one program for a specific task -- no more four different text editors and five different media players and seven different web browsers and nine different window managers, and so on. Our installer is slimmed down and made easier, as is our entire product. It's made consistent and easy to use. We include things a Windows user is accustomed to, such as a "my Linux system" for accessing peripheral devices, a floppy and CD and DVD automounter, a network browser similar to Windows' network neighborhood, a personal files area for management of documents, and so on.
