"Developers and the Linux-curious will like what they see and experience in TurboLinux Inc.'s TurboLinux Workstation 3.6, but it won't be suitable for use by most employees."

"Having originated on the Pacific Rim, TurboLinux is the only version of Linux PC Week Labs knows of for the Japanese and Chinese languages. Despite the version number, TurboLinux Workstation 3.6 is the first desktop-oriented version of the operating system; it was previously available only in combination with the server version."

"PC Week Labs' tests of TurboLinux Workstation 3.6 found that it has an appealing GUI and useful integrated accessories and management utilities. However, although it holds some attraction for power users, compared with Windows and Mac OS the new release provides little incentive (other than cost) to establish Linux as a corporate platform for average users."
