Yellow Dog Linux 3.0 is the most recent major implementation of Terra Soft Solutions’ PowerPC Linux implementation. The new version sports a completely rebuilt installer, 130 packages on 6 CDs, a unified KDE and GNOME desktop environment, enhanced support for the latest ATI and Nvidia graphics chips, along with full 3D support for ATI Radeon cards, and more.
Installing Linux can be a daunting process, but Yellow Dog Linux 3.0 has simplified the process: It uses an installer based on the “Anaconda” engine. The Yellow Dog Linux Installer supports multiple install methods, on-screen help, embedded video help, and much more.
Why bother with Linux, since Unix-based Mac OS X is available? Yellow Dog Linux runs on a wider variety of Mac hardware that Mac OS X supports. It’s an operating system that many academics, researchers, corporate IT personnel and others prefer.
Yellow Dog Linux 3.0 is anticipated for distribution starting on April 16, but if you’re interested in getting your hands on it before then, read on.
YDL.net provides users with lifetime e-mail, Web-based and client-side access, on-screen support in 27 language, custom folder and address management and spell-checking. Now the Enhanced service is available for US$5 a month.
YDL.Net Enhanced subscribers get personal Web space, FTP access to 10MB of storage, immediate, direct access to Yellow Dog Linux ISOs, and ongoing, direct access to Yellow Dog Linux errata as well.
And, if you’re interested in getting your hands on Yellow Dog Linux 3.0 right away, the software is available for immediate download from the YDL.net Enhanced server — 3 install ISOs, 3 source ISOs.
