FREE SuSE LINUX CD IN MACTECH MAGAZINE!

SuSE first to bring Enterprise level Linux to the Apple PowerPC platform

Oakland and Westlake Village, California -- APRIL 7, 2000 -- SuSE Linux AG
and MacTech Magazine announced today that a free distribution CD of the
soon to be released SuSE Linux for the Apple PowerPC will be included in
the June 2000 issue of MacTech Magazine.

This CD will be a fully working distribution of Linux on the 2.2.14 kernel,
with SuSE's powerful installation tool as well as other open-source
software. "SuSE is very excited to be introducing the first fully
engineered version of Linux for the Apple PowerPC," comments Dirk Hohndel,
CTO of SuSE Linux. "This release utilizes our knowledge, successes, and
technologies from our existing distributions. The user can look forward to
a simple installation and a user-friendly configuration at the end of the
setup." The CD does not expire and can be distributed freely.

"With all of the buzz in the Macintosh community about Linux and its
relation to the next generation Mac OS, Macintosh techies are especially
interested in installing and exploring Linux," said Neil Ticktin, Publisher
of MacTech Magazine. "For over 15 years, MacTech has been bringing its
readers the latest information about Macintosh technical issues and
resources, MacTech is simply the perfect place for SuSE Linux, a
international technology leader in open source operating systems, to make
its Macintosh debut."

The June 2000 issue of MacTech Magazine will begin shipping in mid to late
May. New subscribers interested in receiving the June issue must start
their subscriptions before April 25, 2000 to insure delivery. Supplies of
this issue will be extremely limited -- and the issue will likely be very
difficult to get at the newsstand.

To celebrate the launch of SuSE Linux for the PPC, MacTech Magazine will be
offering a limited time, special subscription price. Subscribers can begin
new 12-month subscriptions or renew existing subscriptions before April
25th at the special rate of only $39.95 -- almost 60% OFF the cover price!
(US domestic rate, US$59.95 for Canadian, $89.95 for international rate).
This offer not only gets you a full year of MacTech at a great price, you
get SuSE Linux to boot!

The full SuSE Linux for PPC version will also be available through
