"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
"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."
