Yellow Dog Linux v5.0
Terra Soft solutions has announced Yellow Dog Linux v5.0 for both the Sony Playstation 3 and legacy PowerPC-based Macs. Slated for release mid-November, the company said it plans support for the Sony PS3 first and expects to deliver full support for PowerPC-based Macs by the end of the year. With the release of YDL v5.0, Terra Soft said it will transition from its database-driven help desk to a dedicated YDL.net mailing list. The service will be available for one year from the date of purchase to those individuals who purchase Installation Support services from the company.
Terra Soft said will use its traditional three-phase product roll-out, offering delivery first to members of its YDL.net suite of services; two weeks later, the Terra Soft on-line Store will offer the Install and Source DVDs in a DVD case with printed Guide to Installation, YDL stickers, and the famous YDL Flexible Fliers. About a month after its first release, the Linux OS images will be available from public mirrors.
