Loveland, Colorado — 26 March 2002 — Terra Soft Solutions, Inc., the
leading developer of integrated PowerPC Linux solutions announces shipment
of Yellow Dog Linux 2.2, the most mature and complete PowerPC Linux
distribution available.

Yellow Dog Linux 2.2 offers an array of improvements over v2.1 with the
most advanced, stable release of the 2.4 kernel, improved support for the
Apple ADC monitors, and accelerated video. The screen brightness and volume
control buttons are now supported on NewWorld ROM Apple PowerBooks and
iBook computers. And while the latest release of KDE is an appreciated
improvement, Gnome has taken a stunning leap forward –giving Mac OS X a
run for its money– exceptional by all standards.

A few of the features are:
Red Hat 7.2 based system
‘ext3’ graphical migration program
XFree86 4.2.0, KDE 2.2.2, and Gnome 1.4 w/Nautilus & Evolution
Improved modem & printer support
Improved support for nVidia GeForce2 MX & ATI Radeon
–including ADC digital

With movement into high performance computing supported by the release of
Black Lab 2.0, YDL now offers ‘HPC Node’ as a package selection, in
addition to ‘Base’, ‘Home/Office’, ‘Developer Workstation’, ‘Server’, and
‘Everything’ options.

“The means by which this latest YDL release came together clearly
demonstrates the cohesion and professional relationships that have grown
within the open source community. While our in-house experience plays a
significant role in the maturation of YDL, the unified effort of the
community continues to make YDL possible. Many thanks to everyone who
worked with us,” states Dan Burcaw, Terra Soft Solutions CTO.
