Linpus PR writes: "Taipei, June 27, 2002. Linpus Technologies, Inc is proud to announce the release and availability of the Linpus Linux 8.2 desktop and server operating system. As the oldest and most experienced Linux development company in the Chinese speaking world, Linpus Technologies has combined all the recent Linux advancement with the Chinese environment and language tools into a complete product. The most noteworthy features include the following:

Ease of installation
The complete operating system requires only a few installation steps in a graphical, easy-to-follow environment. Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese and English instructions are provided.

Improved hardware detection
Our development team has worked hard to make sure that the product is available to the widest audience, including notebook users and users of non-standard hardware. A new 2-step installation setup is available to test the hardware compatibility before proceeding with the rest of the package installation.

Advanced Chinese Support
All aspects of Chinese usage are now fully supported. This includes input, printing and working environment in both simplified and traditional Chinese as well as various input methods. A lot of effort went into making sure that offices wishing to move to Linux can do so without much productivity loss.

Unicode and LSB 1.1 compliance
The use of Unicode fonts throughout the applications means that, for the first time, it is possible to mix different Asian character sets in the same document. Compliance with the Linux Standard Base recommendations is another great step towards compatibility with future releases and other Linux distributions.

Hardware compatibility
Our co-operative efforts with many local hardware manufacturers have resulted in a much improved compatibility testing. All modern processors, including Pentium 4 and AMD K7, most video cards such as Matrox, Nvidia, GeForce as well as 802.11b wireless modules and RAID arrays are now fully supported. Installation has also been tested and known to work on most notebooks.
