Red Hat: New Red Hat Beta, LIMBO, Announced

Jul 03, 2002, 20:30 (72 Talkback[s])
A formless gray void shifts around you. You feel neither pleasure
nor pain; mainly a sense of waiting. Other souls similarly confused
shuffle aimlessly about. What do you do now? Where do you go from here?

Welcome to LIMBO, a new beta release of Red Hat Linux.

LIMBO includes, but is not limited to:
      - the latest desktop technology
      - gcc-3.1
      - Mozilla 1.0+
      - OpenOffice 1.0
      - and much much more
Such beta software as LIMBO is not intended for use on mission critical
or production systems. Use on such systems could lead to loss of uptime,
data, money, employment, or sentience.

Remember, if it breaks, you get to keep all 1491 pieces.

Problems with LIMBO should be reported via bugzilla, at:
