"The Linux by Libranet distribution helps bring this powerful operating system within the reach of millions of non-technical computer users."

"Libra Computer Systems, a supplier of UNIX systems and software development, today announced the release of 'LINUX BY LIBRANET'."

"Linux by Libranet is based on the world acclaimed Linux release by Debian. Debian is a volunteer organization that produces the most advanced Linux distribution available today. The Linux by Libranet distribution builds on Debian by packaging the most commonly used applications onto an easy to install CD. This CD installs over 750MB of top rated software including industry standards such as the Netscape communications suite.

The CD which sells at a remarkably low introductory price of $27.00, includes one year of support via email and fax, Linux HOWTO documentation and the Debian-Guide, a concise, easy to follow guide to the use of the Debian Linux Distribution...."
