Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Since beginning production of Libranet in 1999, the Libranet
system, based on Debian, has slowly been inching upward in market
share. This new release aspires to establish Libranet as one of the
Libranet 2.0 has been built from scratch, including a brand new
installer. While retaining the craftsmanship of its previous
versions, this version builds on experience gained. This release
includes very current software and the new installer carefully
guides the user through the install while allowing a variety of
optional choices to be made.
Jon Danzig, Libranet team member, says "Libranet wants to be
more things to more people - a desktop packed with graphical
applications and a selection of software to get developers and
system administrators up and running fast. The new installer is a
dream. If you know what a partition is, the rest is magic."
The 2 CD set includes stalwarts such as Netscape and more recent
additions such as Galeon. Libranet's Adminmenu helps users perform
system tasks easily. Sun Microsystems' StarOffice office suite is
included. Under the hood is the 2.4.16 Linux Kernel. KDE 2.2, GNOME
1.4 are in place and XFree86 4.1 drives the video. Users will find
excellent and up to date software and window managers installed
automatically on their desktop."
