Releases:
2008-11-20 00:00:00.0 Yellow Dog Linux 6.1 has been released    View
"This marks the final release of Yellow Dog Linux by Terra Soft and the first by Fixstars," states Owen Stampflee, Fixstars Solutions' Director of Engineering, "In my five years with Terra Soft we have made incremental improvements with each release, always pressing for a higher quality end user experience. In some updates, we focus on the desktop; in others the development environment. With version 6.1 we have accomplished a unique blend of both. I am personally proud of what we offer with this version of Yellow Dog, and believe our users will enjoy it as well." Satoshi Miki, Fixstars Chief Executive Officer states, "We are proud to not only acquire and tightly integrate YDL into our product and service offerings, but to be a part of this particular release which intentionally addresses the needs of the Cell developer. Having been a YDL user for more than two years, to launch our first Fixstars' branded YDL distribution is a proud moment for my company."

"This particular release marks an important point in our history, leading into our tenth year of Linux OS development and distribution for the Power architecture. To put things in perspective, in the spring of 1999 all installers were text-based, cell phone modems functioned only in the movies, and the fastest desktops ran at 300MHz ... it would be another year before we shipped with AltiVec support. Now, the Cell CPU offers 3.2GHz across 9 cores and our cell phones nearly equal the performance of a desktop of 1999," states Kai Staats, Terra Soft CEO.
