The latest from Turbo Linux is out for you to download and checkout. For those of you unfamiliar with this distribution, Turbo Linux offers a valuable way to take on the needs of the enterprise Linux arena with the power you would expect from a distro offering 64 bit computing.
Turbolinux has released a freely downloadable preview edition of Turbolinux 10 for AMD64 and EM64T processors: “Turbolinux 10 for AMD64/EM64T is a Linux OS compatible with 64-bit CPUs. Its launch is scheduled for the end of the month using our latest server OS Turbolinux 10 Server as a base. Users will be able to take full advantage of the capability and high performance of the newer 64-bit CPU’s without losing the ability to run legacy 32-bit applications. Newly built applications will be free from 32-bit memory and I/O limitations. Turbolinux expects the advantages of the 64-bit platform to drive further expansion in the Linux market.” Read the full press release for further information.
