"OpenLinux Workstation 3.1 is the latest release of
Caldera's Linux-based desktop operating system. In what appears to
be a shift in focus from its user-centric eDesktop 2.4 , Caldera
seems to be targeting its workstation distribution directly at the
developer market by adding a wide variety of development tools to
its already solid desktop configuration, making this latest version
well-suited for corporate in-house development.
The distribution is packaged with programs and utilities
specifically designed to enable Linux developers to create
commercial, open source, or corporate applications. It facilitates
the creation of applications that conform to an open standards
environment, including the proposed Linux Standard Base. Developers
can use the included Java, C, or C++ development tools to create
scalable applications. OLW's C environment consists of the GNU C
and C++ compilers (at the 2.5.2 revision level), and the 2.2.1 GNU
C Library. Also included are PERL 5.6.0, Python 1.5.2, and Forte,
an integrated set of tools for developing database-aware Web
applications. And an optional CD-ROM included with the boxed
product provides the 64-bit Caldera OpenLinux EAP (Early Access
Product) for Itanium Processors for those developers wishing to
develop for that platform.
OLW supports a virtually endless variety of hardware devices,
including nearly all of the newer graphics adapters available,
numerous network interface cards, and dozens of sound cards. Many
USB devices such as mice and keyboards are also supported, and
support for Firewire-standard devices is growing. You can verify
the compatibility of expansion cards (including SCSI host adapters,
sound cards, video cards, and so on) compatibility is easily
verified via Caldera's Web site."
