"Now installing Debian GNU/Linux on a laptop is as simple as loading a CD, turning it on and watching it go."

"Tuxtops, leading the pack in the Linux mobile computer market, is proud to offer its new Debian software release specially tuned for laptops. Now you can buy one of the company's premiere pre-configured laptops with Debian, or simply purchase the standalone software if you already own a notebook."

"Debian GNU/Linux (www.debian.org) is the most widely hailed non-commercial distribution of the trememdously popular free operating system, GNU/Linux.  Tuxtops has selected Debian as a key component of its offering, prompted by vociferous demand from its customer base. This release marks another major advance towards Tuxtops' ultimate goal, to make the mobile Linux computing experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible for end users, businesses, and systems administrators."

"The Tuxtops Debian release finally makes this fantastic open source operating system available with a custom compiled kernel 2.2.17 (complete with .config file), PCMCIA 3.1.20, and specially tuned XFree86 configuration. Netscape and StarOffice 5.2 (the newest version of Sun Microsystem's Microsoft Office compatible office suite) come preloaded. Add to that a free copy of O'Reilly's Learning Debian/GNU Linux with every pre-configured laptop purchased, and anyone is ready to run Debian right out of the box."
