LinuxPR: Epitera To Unveil New Linux Desktop Environment At COMDEX

Nov 10, 2000, 21:38 (7 Talkback[s])

"Epitera today confirmed it will launch a new Linux desktop environment at COMDEX Las Vegas 2000 aimed at mainstream consumer and corporate PC users."

"The most visible example of the desktop's user-friendly approach is an animated intelligent assistant named Kandu -- which the company says will provide the user with more intuitive and proactive support than the assistant found on other operating systems."

"The new Epitera desktop also will allow customer support to remotely access a customer's computer to assist with problem diagnosis and resolution."

"Basically, we're taking away one of the major obstacles to widespread adoption of Linux," said Yoram Salinger, CEO of Epitera. "Quick and efficient customer support. Furthermore, we have devised a method that allows for automatic download and installation of new applications."
