"Caldera Systems Inc.'s new Linux management package, Caldera Volution, is a good first step toward centralized administration of Linux systems, but eWeek Labs found it to be an immature product that anyone but the Linux faithful may have trouble mastering."

"However, for sites that manage numerous Linux systems, the software distribution features in this first version may override its shortcomings."

"Although setting up software distribution should have been less involved and Caldera's documentation was of little help, Volution can quickly roll out applications to many Linux machines, and we believe this to be its strongest feature. The product supports all major Linux distributions, although it does not support the latest version (7.0) of Red Hat Inc.'s Red Hat Linux."
