Yellow Dog Linux maker Terra Soft Solutions has announced a partnership with Kudzu Enterprises. Terra Soft says that Yellow Dog Linux 2.0, a Linux solution developed specifically for PowerPC-based computers, will be distributed by Kudzu. Kudzu is a new source for software and books.
Terra Soft co-founder and CEO Kai Staats says that in his company’s ideal situation, a distributor will do more than just warehouse product.
“The distribution model that Kudzu offers is unique, upholding our desire to maintain direct communication with the resellers while successfully moving us into new arenas we were unable to obtain on our own,” said Staats.
The next major release of Yellow Dog Linux, version 2.0, is being readied for release on Tuesday, May 29. Terra Soft says the new version sports a graphical installer, KDE 2.1, “and support for much of the new Apple hardware in addition to most every older PowerPC Macintosh Apple has manufactured.”
Kudzu Enterprises will help Terra Soft to distribute Yellow Dog Linux internationally. Terra Soft will also distribute Yellow Dog Linux through retailers including Fry’s Electronics and MicroCenter.
