Technalign, Inc. has released a few days ago the Pioneer Basic 3.0 line of products, including MigrationSERVER and Stagecoach as announced by the producing company yesterday.
Besides the above-mentioned products, another one, Basic Workstation, is included. Stagecoach combines a workstation solution with
a server. All their products will be maintained for 7 years, period that will provide companies a stable release of the operating system for a very long time.
All Pioneer Basic products run from a LiveCD that will allow users to load the CD and test the workstations and servers before installation. KDE is included in every distribution from Technalign, but it can be removed manually and replaced with something else without any constraints from the software producer.
MigrationSERVER and Stagecoach will continue to support Webmin for a graphical interface and SSH. The new repositories established for the server are completely based on Debian and will continue to be maintained throughout the product lifecycle by Technalign. New and improved functions are included in Pioneer Basic 3.0 Workstation and new 3.0 releases will be based on Release Packs over the duration of the lifecycle when updates become too overwhelming.
Dianne Ursini, CEO of Technalign, Inc. declared:"Our end-users and partners have been requesting a longer lifecycle since our inception and with Technalign now maintaining its own set of repositories we can meet those requirements. Pioneer Basic now concentrates solely on Debian while creating the repositories."
When a user installs for the first time any Pioneer 3.0 Linux products, he will have the ability to run Basic with the Explorer repositories. In this way, the community and commercial users will be allowed to test the system before purchasing the product. A serial number in necessary to allow access to the Pioneer commercial repositories. Community members are encouraged to install and run Pioneer Explorer 1.1 or Basic with no registration.
