BW: Macmillan’s “Complete Linux 6.0” is July’s Linux Retail Best-Seller

“Macmillan USA’s “The Complete Linux(tm) Operating System 6.0”
ranked first in retail sales of Linux products in July, outselling
its nearest competitor by more than two-to-one, according to
figures from PC Data, the computer industry’s primary source for
software, hardware and video game sales information.

The product’s success comes as no surprise to us,” says
Doug Bennett, Macmillan USA’s president. “It features
Linux-Mandrake, named “Product of the Year” by LinuxWorld
editors.
It is less expensive and includes the documentation
and support resources that only Macmillan’s authors, some of the
world’s best Linux minds, can offer.”

“PC Data’s July figures show 10,445 retail sales for Macmillan’s
“Complete Operating System 6.0” compared to 4,802 sales for the Red
Hat distribution. In all, five of the top-sellers were Macmillan
products. These included the “Deluxe Linux O/S 6.0,” the “Secure
Server Edition Linux O/S 6.0” and Macmillan’s “Linux Complete
Starter Kit.”
