23. Feb. 2004

Always Current Lineox Enterprise Linux 3.001 is the first revision of Lineox Enterprise Linux 3.0 in the Always Current series of which a new revision is released every time a bug or security fix program package is released. When a customer downloads three CD-ROM images or one DVD-ROM image of the Always Current Lineox Enterprise Linux, every package it contains is current, there is no instant need to update packages, and the system is secure right from the start. The high speed download quota for Always Current Lineox Enterprise Linux is sold directly from at 15 Euros and 20 Euros for both disk type versions. Lineox expects to release new revisions of the Always Current Lineox Enterprise Linux once or twice every week.

When you install an ordinary, partially outdated Linux distribution, you have to download and install all the cumulated updates to ensure you installation is current and secure. Using Always Current Lineox Enterprise Linux, you install only current program packages and save both download and installation time. Lets guess that you save half an hour. Now ask yourself: is that time more valuable than 15 Euros?
