FREE SuSE LINUX CD IN MACTECH MAGAZINE!

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

Oakland and Westlake Village, California -- June 23, 2000 -- SuSE Linux AG
and MacTech Magazine announced today that a free distribution CD of SuSE
Linux for the Apple PowerPC is included in the June 2000 issue of MacTech
Magazine. The issue not only contains this amazing CD, but extensive
coverage on Home Automation.

This CD is 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 is being sent to all normal subscribers with some
additional newsstand distribution. There's a limited supply of back issue
copies available direct from DevDepot as well. Back issues (same
price as the newsstand) are available at:
