Loveland, Colorado -- 19 March 2003 -- Terra Soft Solutions, Inc. today announced an amazing upgrade to the Company's flagship product Yellow Dog Linux.

Code-named Sirius, Yellow Dog Linux version 3.0 represents a new generation of Linux for the PowerPC architecture. Featuring the ultra-modern gcc 3.2.1 compiler, Yellow Dog 3.0 offers a powerful new foundation for code development.

Boasting the first port of Red Hat's 'Anaconda' to PowerPC, the installer is smart and friendly, providing helpful on-screen assistance and feedback in a comfortable graphical environment. If there remained any concern for the ease of installing Linux, it is forever removed.

KDE 3.1 and GNOME 2.2 provide the foundation for the stunning, unified 'Wonderland' theme, offering a seemless user experience.

Daniel Burcaw, Chief Technology Officer of Terra Soft states, "Developing Yellow Dog is hard work. It involves immense effort by our dedicated staff. Throughout development, we remain focused on our customers and what they desire. It is their feedback, their discoveries that makes it all worth while."

Key features of Yellow Dog Linux 3.0 include:

  • 6 CDs (3 install, 3 source).
  • Modern, robust Anaconda installer engine.
  • kernel 2.4.20.
  • gcc 3.2.1 and glibc 2.3.1.
  • XFree86 4.3, GNOME 2.2, and KDE 3.1.
  • Mac-On-Linux 0.9.68 (Classic Mac OS & OS X 10.2 -at the same time!).
  • Improved hardware support including Apple eMac, all GeForce 4-based Power Macs, and PowerBook 12".
  • 3D support for ATI Radeon series graphics cards.
  • Sleep support for all Apple ATI Radeon Mobility-based portables.

Yellow Dog Linux 3.0 ISOs images are available today exclusively to YDL.Net Enhanced members. All Apple computers available from the Terra Soft Store ship immediately with Yellow Dog Linux 3.0 pre-installed. Retail Yellow Dog Linux packages will be available for pre-order March 31 with anticipated shipment the week of April 16.
