"Terra Soft Solutions is pleased to announce domestic distribution of Yellow Dog Linux through Pinacor and the entire Apple dealer community."

"'It is time for Yellow Dog on Apple PowerPC to be recognized as a very real, proven solution that rivals the best of Linux on Intel. We have worked hard to produce a highly professional distribution, to offer a product that contains the most recent kernels, libraries, and applications. Yellow Dog on Apple hardware does not only meet industry standards for speed, stability, and support, but will now be widely available in retail, VAR, and mail-order points of purchase. From day-one we envisioned strong, national distribution channels that would enable YDL to be recognized as an industry leader. We know our relationship with Pinacor to be a bold step toward this goal.' states Kai Staats, CEO, Terra Soft Solutions, Inc."

"Terra Soft's flagship product, Yellow Dog Linux Champion Server has rapidly gained international recognition as a professional Linux-for-PowerPC distribution. Terra Soft currently offers in-house installation support and through a strong relationship with Linuxcare--enterprise level technical support; industry standard rackmount hardware from Marathon Computer; and as announced in a recent press release, the latest, most sought-after games. As with Civilization: Call to Power, Loki Entertainment Software and Terra Soft will sometimes provide games for Linux on PowerPC before they are available for the Mac OS."
