"The Redmond Linux Organization announces the release of Beta 3 of Redmond Linux, Personal Edition. Beta 3 is the latest release of Redmond Linux Personal, a Linux distribution with the simplicity and ease of use necessary for new and casual computer users."

"Linux is for everyone," says founder Joseph Cheek. "Redmond Linux has improved upon the user interface found in standard Linux distributions to the point that it is easy enough for real people to use." Redmond Linux includes simplified versions of Caldera's Lizard installer and the KDE 2.1.1 desktop, as well as cutting-edge software - Linux kernel 2.4.3, Mozilla 0.8.1, RealPlayer 8, Macromedia Flash 5, Adobe Acrobat 4, and a demo of theKompany.com's Kapital financial management program."

"This Beta 3 release brings Redmond Linux to the level of stability and number of features needed for home use," he continues. "We've got everything a home user needs - full Internet access, word processing, spreadsheet, and financial management software, multimedia, and entertainment - without the excess software that's commonly attached to an operating system. Extra software is available for those who need it, and our management tools allow easy remote diagnosis and repair of damaged systems."
