[ Thanks to John Gowin for this link. ]

"WorkSpot, http://www.workspot.com/ is a new web site that functions like a Linux work station and allows you to get a taste of just what the Linux operating system is like. It may also be used for actual production, but at present its in the beta stage of testing."

"The first problem that I had was just getting registered. It took me TWO WEEKS to get approved. This, I understand, was caused by being written about on the Slashdot web site. A ton of people must have registered. Because of this site being Slashdotted and in beta testing, it runs slow. Sometimes its so slow that you cannot get anything done."

"I connected to WorksSpot using both my Windows operating system via IE5 and Linux Mandrake 7.0 via Netscape. There seems to be Six different parts to this site. First there is the Linux Work Station which seems to work ok as far as I can tell. Then you have File Manager, E-mail, Preferences, Help and Logout. The Linux section is the section I have spent most of my time."
