For system requirements and other prerequisites, please see the web page for each of the included CDs.

Further Information:

Which is the best Linux distribution? The only right answer to that question is, "compare them yourself." When you buy the Linux MegaPak, you can test drive all of these distributions:

In addition, you get the nifty Penguin Power Bumper Sticker - Show the world your love for Linux!

When you've decided which Linux is best for you, please consider buying its "official" version:

By doing so, you help support the companies that foster Linux development and promotion. You also get extras not included in the freely-distributable versions, such as commercial software, printed documentation, and attractive packaging.

Evolution of the MegaPak:
Date Change
1998/12/02 MegaPak introduced with Caldera OpenLinux Lite 1.3, Debian 2.0, Linux Pro 5.4, Red Hat Linux 5.2, S.u.S.E. 5.3, Slackware 3.6, and TurboLinux 3.0.
1998/12/31 FreeBSD and Mandrake added to MegaPak.
1999/02/10 Linux Lovers Bumper Sticker replaced by Penguin Power Bumper Sticker.
1999/03/15 SuSE Linux updated from 5.3 to 6.0; Mandrake updated from 5.2 to 5.3.
1999/04/15 Debian updated from the 2.0 single CD to the 2.1 two-CD set. This meant that the MegaPak changed from a 9-CD set to a 10-CD set, and so the price had to increase from $15.99 to $17.79.

What is this Linux stuff anyway?
