Caldera komt komende maandag met OpenLinux 2.2. Ze zeggen een gebruikersvriendelijke installatie zonder command- prompt te hebben ontwikkeld.
Caldera Systems will introduce a consumer-friendly desktop version of OpenLinux next Monday that lets users install and run the upstart operating system without ever seeing a confusing command line interface. Historically, Linux has largely appeared as server software, but OpenLinux 2.2 is an attempt to reach an increasingly large group of people who want to try out the relatively new operating system. More than half of Linux sales now are to people with no Linux or Unix experience, said Caldera Systems chief executive Ransome Love. "We have a real alternative to Windows now," added Lynn Nielson, Caldera's development director, acknowledging that one problem has been the lack of a good graphical installation routine for Linux.
