I have the last version of their Linux for the desktop and it was the only distro that would correctly identify all the hardware on my laptop. BRING IT BACK! I loved their distro better than anyone elses at the time. Now it is down to distros which can not even recognize the graphic card in my laptop (how sad). 2002-06-28 12:00 am Anonymous That openlinux does not work as good as the older version on my laptop. 2002-06-28 12:13 am Anonymous Yeah, their installer is excellent. Otherwise, OpenDesktop is just another RPM-based distribution. 2002-06-28 1:23 am Anonymous I am also rather fond of Caldera’s Linux distro. However, I have high hopes for United Linux. I believe it will be a powerful engine in the Linux world. One thing: I preferred the old OpenLinux distribution. Even OpenLinux Lite (who remembers it?) was a very complete, comprehensive and well-engineered distro. 2002-06-28 8:40 pm Anonymous “OpenDesktop is just another RPM-based distribution.” Not so! OpenLinux was (is?) a heavily tested and well internationalized OS. Caldera always made sure that the software they shipped would compile on their current systems and their system was very stable. Most of the other popular RPM based distros can’t say that (Mandrake, RedHat, etc.) Caldera has always been a step above the rest (RPM based anyway).
