SAN DIEGO, Mar 24, 2004 -- Lindows Inc. today unveiled the Desktop Linux Enterprise Assessment Kit, available now for $149 at [HYPERLINK@www.lindows.com] . An all-in-one tool designed to make evaluating an enterprise migration strategy easier than ever, the assessment kit offers enterprises an easy way to determine the right fit for desktop Linux within their organization. Anyone looking to learn more about how desktop Linux would be of benefit can now explore the interface of multiple versions of LindowsOS, watch multimedia tutorials, experiment with software applications, and test filetype and hardware compatibility, all from one DVD disc.
