CD Transforms PC Into LAN Server
WGS Linux Pro offers an immense range of applications, programming languages, tools and Internet connectivity in a single, inexpensive package.
The CD-ROM package transforms virtually any PC into a 32-bit multi-user, multi-tasking workstation or network server via a UNIX-like operating system.
Students at Smoky Hill High School in Aurora, Colo., for example, use Linux to monitor 2,100 newsgroups and store eight weeks of news as a resource for the social studies department.
Students using Linux gain valuable programming experience and learn UNIX concepts that are in demand throughout corporate America. WGS Linux Pro contains a full X-Windows GUI, graphical administration tools, Web server setup, FTP setup, multiple-user account management and more.
A 1,200-page "Linux Encyclopedia" brings novices up to speed. Plus, under a General Public License, the software is available for copying to as many machines as desired. WorkGroup Solutions, Inc., Aurora, CO, (303) 699-7470, firstname.lastname@example.org.
