S.u.S.E. Linux 6.1 [software]

5-CD-ROMs, including 450-page reference book and bootdisk, all device drivers for supported hardware, and more than 50 new packages -- almost 1000 of the most useful Linux applications! Still only $49.95.

SuSE Linux 6.1 is here -- and it includes version 2.2 of the Linux kernel! Kernel 2.2, in development for 2-1/2 years, offers significant enhancements, including:
  • Even faster kernel performance
  • Much improved performance and support for Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) devices
  • Driver support for many more kinds of devices, especially multimedia (video, digitizers, and sound)
  • Support for more non-Intel processors and different workstations (e.g., Sparc)

SuSE Linux continues to offer improved desktop environments, including the updated KDE 1.1 and now GNOME 1.0:

  • KDE (K Desktop Environment) is extended by several interesting features. The disk navigator now allows direct, menu-driven access to the complete file system; the Window Manager functions can be executed using keyboard shortcuts; Mouse key mapping is freely configurable; and you can display the menu bars of the windows at the top edge of the screen, just as with MacOS.

  • A popular alternative to KDE, GNOME 1.0 is on SuSE Linux! It can also now be combined with any window manager, including WindowMaker, icewm or Enlightenment -- which are, of course, also part of SuSE Linux 6.1.

Need complete office applications? SuSE Linux 6.1 includes both StarOffice 5 Personal Edition, a complete office package which can be used free-of-charge for private purposes, and the Personal Edition of Corel WordPerfect 8 as well. Both allow you to import MS Office® files and other popular formats. As for cross-platform compatibility, Corel WordPerfect 8 for Linux uses the same file format as Corel WordPerfect for Windows® 95, Windows NT®, Windows 3.1x and UNIX®.
