Smart Reseller says, "Caldera wins the open source race to market -- by a beta." Obviously, they never heard of Stampede Linux, which runs 2.2.1 out of the "box".

"Want up-to-date Linux without tears or patching? Caldera Systems Inc. is coming to the rescue -- followed by the rest of the distributors of the open source operating system."

"Caldera also promises a new and much easier to use installation program called LIZARD. The company hopes that this release will equal and surpass SuSE's famed installation tool: YaST."

"For now, Caldera has the lead over Linux distributors. Only Pacific HiTech is making the 2.2.1 kernel available as an upgrade from its Web site to its TurboLinux 3.0.1 users. Red Hat Software and SuSE Inc.'s are following up as fast as they can with their own 2.2 updates. By this summer, all the major reseller Linuxes will have 2.2 distributions shrink-wrapped and ready to sell."
