Caldera OpenLinux Version 1.2

Caldera continues to offer a commercial grade, shrink-wrap package with more of the applications to make it a complete solution for business.

COL Base and Standard are real products with a lot of retail appeal. They aren't perfect, which disappoints me—the problems I found could have been avoided by a little more testing before burning the CD-ROMs—but the competition (including Microsoft software) isn't perfect either. The included applications are powerful and show that Linux on an office desktop is truly possible.

For the average geek, Caldera's products are not much different from Red Hat or S.u.S.E. For serious office applications or convincing your significant other to use Linux, I feel OpenLinux has a lot of potential.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
