Update Announcement for StartCom MultiMedia Edition
Eilat, Israel, October 25, 2004 - StartCom Linux released today a updated version of its StartCom MultiMedia Edition - the most popular distribution of the StartCom Linux Operating Systems, with a better driver support for sound and graphic cards. The new version is available at any download mirror, which can be found by visiting the download page at the StartCom website. Users of the previous version are urged to use the StartCom Network Utility (up2date) in order to update their systems and visit the Announcments at the User Forum.
- StartCom MultiMedia Edition which was released at the 12 October surprised with its big success. Today StartCom MultiMedia Edition (ML-3.0.3) holds about a 56 % share of all installed StartCom Linux systems, with StartCom Enterprise Linux (AS-3.0.1) being on the second place with 38 %, this in less than two weeks of its existence. Who said the desktop market is not attractive for Linux systems?
- Due to this success, StartCom decided to invest even more resources in this distribution and offers today a updated version, with many additional drivers, specially for Sound and Video cards, namely the inclusion of ALSA modules and a NVIDIA driver. The current version can be downloaded from one of our mirrors. Choose the iso images with the -i386-[1-3].iso extension.
Users of a already installed StartCom MultiMedia System do not have to install again! We urge them to use the StartCom Network application to keep their computer updated. A good resource is also the StartCom User Forum with detailed instructions.
