"Progeny Linux Systems, Inc. announces the release of the first
edition of Progeny Debian. The download edition is available now.
The box set will be available on April 23rd."
"Progeny Debian was developed in cooperation with Debian
GNU/Linux, a popular Linux distribution developed by more than 600
volunteers and regarded as having the most innovative software
management technology available. The advantages of using a
Debian-based operating system include the ability to upgrade
mission critical systems without rebooting, installation of
software with a single command, and a network-based software
manager. Debian was founded by Ian Murdock, President and CEO of
Progeny Linux Systems. The company includes a number of leading
Debian developers who are led by CTO John H. Hartman, a prominent
expert in operating systems."
"Progeny Debian provides an enhanced feature set that includes
easy graphical installation, hardware detection support, and
improved configuration and management tools. Also included is the
latest stable technology, consisting of XFree86 4.0.2 and glibc2.2.
Other additions include improved USB support and an auto-install
feature for streamlining multiple installations."
