SOT Launch New BETA Programme for Linux

Sot Finnish Software Engineering Ltd. Announces Beta Programme For Upcoming English Version Of The Most Popular Linux In Finland


SOT, publisher of the #1 Linux in Finland - the home country of Linux and Linus - today announced their beta programme for bringing their Best Linux operating system to English-speaking users around the globe.

"In Best Linux we have achieved a combination of maintaining stability and providing all the latest, untested software. By having only well- tested final releases and different beta programmes we have kept developer components and end-user releases separate. This has proven to be the right path in Finland. We are making the most end-user friendly Linux distribution, one that even inexperienced end-users can easily adopt." said Santeri Kannisto, CEO, SOT. "Happy Halloween!"

The forthcoming English beta version is called Best Linux T-1. SOT will ship the CD-ROMs free-of-charge to registered beta testers shortly. The registration form is available at the Best Linux web site, http://bestlinux.net

"We have the most popular Linux distribution in Finland and Sweden. Now it's time to share it with the international Linux community. Releasing a free-of-charge beta CD-ROM for international developers enables us to establish useful connections and get immediate feedback before releasing the final version." said Raimo Koski, Linux R&D manager, SOT.

The Best Linux product contains everything needed to easily install, configure and run Linux, the world's most advanced operating system. Included are four CD-ROMs, a detailed user manual and lifetime technical installation support. CD-ROMs include the installation CD, a source code CD, software library CD and Linux games CD.

About Linu

xLinux is a co-operatively developed operating system used worldwide. It was started by Mr. Linus Torvalds in Finland in 1991. In 1998 Linux was the fastest-growing server operating environment, growing more than 212 percent in that year alone (IDG). Applications of Linux vary from home use to fully functional UNIX workstations and Internet servers. The difference between Linux and other operating systems is that Linux is open source software. Best Linux is developed and maintained under GPL license as a freely distributable software and is also available on the Internet, free-of-charge.
