YDL: Yellow Dog Linux

What is Yellow Dog Linux?
An open source, Linux operating system for home, office, server, and cluster users. Built upon the Fedora Core, Terra Soft has since the spring of 1999 developed and maintained YDL for the Power architecture family of CPUs. This focus and dedication has lead to the world's leading Linux for Power OS.

What is included?

Yellow Dog Linux combines a no non-sense graphical installer with support for a wide range of Power hardware, leading (but not bleeding) edge kernels and stable, functional compilers for code development. And of course, the foundation applications and servers expected for web, database, email, and network services. Greater than 2000 packages are included on the Install DVD.

A history of dedication and innovation.

Proven world-wide as the preferred Linux OS for the Power architecture, YDL v5.0 brings Terra Soft into its 9th year of Power Linux operating system development and support. What's more, v5.0 introduces E17 as the default desktop environment, granting users a new kind of desktop experience.

Simplify your home theater.
Work by day, entertainment by night, the PS3 with Yellow Dog Linux provides a complete home office and entertainment system. Remove the CD changer and DVD player. Install the PLAYSTATION(R)3 instead. With HDMI or Component + Optical, your home theater will provide the visual and audio experience you expect ... but from a single source. At 1080i/p and with support for DTS 5.1 surround, it really is worth waiting for the blockbusters to come out on DVD.

Capture everything.
With either the PS3's GameOS or Yellow Dog Linux, you may rapidly capture your photos from most digital, USB cameras. Use 'gthumb' provided with Yellow Dog Linux to easily, quickly preview photos, organize into albums and folders, and give slide shows from your latest adventures.

Make it real.
The whitepaper must be ready for the engineering meeting. The English 203 critical review is due tomorrow morning! The Google map to the new restaurant needs to be printed. You've got YDL on your PS3!
Attach most any USB or ethernet printer (HP and Epson are Linux friendly) and use the industry standard "CUPS" web interface to configure, then print MS Office compatible documents, spreadsheets, even presentations.
