|Caldera Systems delivers "Quick Start To Linux"
Easy, Self-Paced Instruction Includes Guided Demonstrations
OREM, UT-July 17, 2000-Caldera Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CALD) today began shipping its first computer-based training (CBT)
product - Quick Start to Linux. Quick Start is self-paced with hands-on, guided demonstrations including the preparation
of a Windows-based machine for a Linux installation, the install itself and the navigation of Linux desktops. In
addition, Caldera's Quick Start CBT identifies business solutions using Linux while providing historical Linux
The Quick Start CBT targets both professionals evaluating Linux as a business solution and, computer users considering Linux for the desktop. Quick Start for Linux has been independently tested by KeyLabsTM, an Exodus Communications Company, to run on Windows and Linux.
"There is a stereotype that only highly technical individuals can integrate Linux into their businesses or use Linux at home," said Jeff Morris, senior buyer at Micro Center. "Caldera removes the mystery from Linux with their Quick Start CBT. We hope PC users and business people--who have been intimidated in the past--will use this product to evaluate and embrace Linux."
"This is our first entry into multimedia training and we're extremely pleased with market reaction to it," said Shelley
Couch, director of education for Caldera Systems, Inc. "The fact that the Quick Start CBT is hands-on, easy-to-use and
self-paced will be characteristic of all future media-based training that Caldera delivers."
Attendees of Caldera's Power Solutions Tour 2000 will receive Quick Start to Linux at no charge. The tour ends July 27, in Dallas, Texas.
