Jason Perlow throws a slew of Linux distributions at the IBM
Intellistation E Pro and encounters no problems:
"The Intellistation represents the latest in IBM PC workstation
technology. What impresses us most about this machine is not how
innovative it is but how innovative it isn't. The Intellistation is
everything that you wouldn't expect a classic IBM product to be --
a totally hassle-free, non-proprietary, off-the-shelf generic PC
that's extremely well supported...."
"We installed Red Hat 6.2, Red Hat 7.0, Caldera OpenDesktop 2.4,
Mandrake 7.2 and SuSE 7.0 on this machine, all without incident.
Frankly, we were hoping something would go awry and that there
would be some surprise to report; shockingly, nothing went wrong.
There's not a heck of a lot to say. Besides its black,
Darth-Vaderesque exterior, it's a totally standard machine that's
extremely well engineered, and we didn't find a single Linux
distribution that didn't run on it properly."
