Loveland, Colorado, 5 July 1999

On July 21st Terra Soft Solutions will debut the most
professional, powerful, and complete Linux distribution for PowerPC
available: Champion Server 1.1 offers improvements and updates both
anticipated and unexpected, including Netscape, 10/100Mb ethernet,
simplified X setup, and improved support for iMacs, Blue &
Whites, and the ’99 “bronze keyboard” PowerBook G3s as well as the
older Apple PowerPCs.

“Since the introduction of Champion Server 1.0 in March, we have
received highly valuable feedback from our customers. And we have
listened. With CS 1.1, we responded to both the positive and the
negative, and hope to exceed the expectations of our existing and
future customers. This is the product we envisioned when the
concept of Yellow Dog was born,” states Kai Staats, CEO Terra Soft
Solutions, Inc.

With Yellow Dog Linux Champion Server 1.1, Terra Soft extends
Installation Support to include X configuration, offers hardware
support for certain IBM RS/6000s, and teams-up with leading
