Lindist to Resell Linux Migration Tools in Sweden

Ray George writes "April 4, 2006 – Versora announced today a distribution partnership throughout Sweden with Lindist for its Windows to Linux desktop migration product Progression Desktop.

A Linux Product Excellence Award finalist at the 2005 LinuxWorld Boston and San Francisco Conferences, Progression Desktop automates the migration of data, application and system settings from Windows to Linux desktops.

"Each of the last 5 quarters has yielded double digit percentage growth of Linux desktop usage in Sweden,” said Lindist Director Daniel Osser. “As Linux adoption continues to rise, Progression Desktop will play an important role in migrating users off of Windows.”

Progression Desktop employs an easy to use "next, next, finished" interface to guide the user through a migration. Additionally, migrations can be fully automated from a command line to allow integration with third party system management tools such as Novell ZENworks and Red Hat Network.

“Reports indicate that Europe is really leading the charge for Linux on the desktop.” said Versora CEO Mike Sheffey. “Partnering with the leading Linux distributor in Sweden is an important step in reaching users who are warm to Linux and would be more likely to migrate to a Linux desktop.”

Operating since 2000, Lindist distributes popular Linux software offerings from leading vendors such as Novell, Red Hat, Scalix, Xandros and Zend.
