Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

Linare Linux

Linare Corporation, an integrator of software and hardware focused on the Linux platform, is officially launching its Desktop OS software Linare Linux this week. This user friendly, reliable and cost efficient operating system, which provides everything needed in a typical office environment, is available for just $19.95 and offers round-the-clock technical support. Linare Linux is based on the Linux kernel and KDE, a user-friendly and more powerful graphical environment. Linare Linux also comes with Open Office, a full office suite compatible with Microsoft Office, which includes word processing, spreadsheet, drawing and presentation software.

Features of Linare Linux include a full Internet suite, bundled with a GAIM messenger that can be used with Yahoo, MSN, AOL and ICQ protocols. Linare Linux includes Mozilla mail software, the increasingly popular Outlook-styled email program, and the Mozilla Internet Browser.

The GNOPPIX project proudly announces the release of version 0.5 of the GNOPPIX linux live cd. Version 0.5 comes with lots of improvements compared to version 0.4.

GNOPPIX is a linux live cd based upon Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 (woody). It can be compared to Knoppix but GNOPPIX uses GNOME as desktop environment.

We're planning to create a GUI installation tool to make installing GNU/Linux with a GNOME desktop as easy as possible.
