From the April 11 issue of PC Week:

PC Week Labs Product of the Week

Linux 1.0, a free Unix clone developed on the Internet, is easily one of the 
most interesting products PC Week Labs has come across in a while.

Linux is a complete POSIX-compatible operating system with the X Window
System, good development tools, and complete TCP/IP networking.  We've
been pounding on it for almost a year, and it is invaluable as the
platform for our internal World-Wide Web, FTP, and X Window host server.

For users willing to do much of their own tech support, Linux can make
an excellent platform for applications that require a good multiuser
operating system but that don't justify spending hundreds of dollars
for a commercial Unix system.  The product, which will be reviewed in
an upcoming issue, can be downloaded from the Internet from several places,
including in /pub/Linux/distributions.  It is also available
by mail order from companies such as Linux Systems Labs, which can be
reached in Clinton, Mo., at (313) 954-2829.


It's surprising to see this because PC Week rarely talks about Unix, and
hardly ever reviews freeware (or even shareware, for that matter). I'm
looking forward to PC Week's review.
