NORTH VANCOUVER, BC, March 13, 2001 - Libra Computer Systems, producer of the Libranet Linux Distribution today announced the release of 'LIBRANET LINUX 1.9.0'.

Libranet Linux is based on the Debian GNU/Linux distribution.
The Libranet Linux distribution further builds on Debian by selecting, packaging and configuring the latest and best applications. Libranet assembles a pre-configured home or office desktop packaged onto an easy to install CD.
The CD installs over 1GB of top rated software including industry standards such as the Netscape communications suite.

Among the list of packages installed, users will find XFree86 4.0.2, KDE 2.1, GNOME, and the Linux kernel 2.4.2. Several window managers are included and a host of applications packages.
Users can choose between using the standard ext2 filesystem or the fast ReiserFS filesystem.

Jon Danzig, President of Libra Computer Systems commented, "With this release we have assured Libranet the top place in Debian based distributions. The level of sophistication of Libranet 1.9.0 makes it the most comprehensive desktop system available. The step by step install process combined with our unrivaled Libranet Adminmenu make installing and configuring this system a pleasure. While making things easier for new Linux users, we have not by any means ignored the experienced user. The full power of GNU/Linux remains unbridled, and with full access to ongoing developments in the Linux world, experienced users will find Libranet to be the powerful desktop they expect from today's technology."

The CD sells for the low price of $20.00 and can be purchased on line at the Libranet website. Prior to purchasing the CD, users may check their hardware compatibility free of charge.

Libranet offers support for registered users, a growing users mailing list and access to installed documentation. Recently a fledgling Support Solutions Database has been added to the site.

Libra Computer Systems is a privately held company based in North Vancouver, BC, Canada.
