"Eazel of Mountain View, Calif., will demonstrate its Nautilus Linux desktop and file management system for the first time. The Nautilus desktop environment features a fresh, intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) based on the popular GNOME desktop environment, and is easily customized to fit users' tastes and levels of Linux knowledge. (For instance, users can specify if they want to be able to access the Linux command line from the desktop.)"

"Nautilus also includes features that allow users to share and manage files across a network. Software inventory management, Web-based software notification and auto-update tools are included to keep Linux boxes running Nautilus operating smoothly with the latest open source security and operating system patches."

"Helix Code is another Linux desktop developer looking to make a splash at LinuxWorld. Helix Code will debut Helix Code Version 1.0 featuring the GNOME desktop environment along with several tools aimed at making the Linux PCs more accessible to the masses."

"The package includes a simple installation program and the GNOME Updater tool which lets users update their GNOME desktop and Linux operating system from the Web. The company also will announce a partnership with IBM to put Helix Code 1.0 on Linux-based IBM laptops."
