PC Week: TurboLinux in Desktop Debut

“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.”
