Share Article

Connect Computing is offering an e-book with CD-Roms that help people try e-commerce, accounting, and other Open Source / Linux apps.

Linux has been a mainstream contender for server applications. Connect Computing has put together a complete how-to guide for several applications as well as a CD-ROM that saves people time finding and downloading these applications.

Also, the downloads have been "Extracted" on the CD so anyone can quickly find the readme files or other information that is usually available only after people have downloaded the application.

Applications on the CD include:

  • OSCommerce (MS2Max version 1.7)
  • Mambo Server (Content management)
  • DotProject (version 2)
  • SQL-Ledger (version 2.4.7)
  • SugarCRM
  • XRMS (CRM)

Also on the CD are Microsoft Windows and Linux versions of Open Office and The Gimp (An Open Source alternative to PhotoShop).

An Extra CD-ROM of Konnipx 3.7 is also included. This CD let's users try a Linux desktop running from only the CD, without installing anything to their hard drive.

"For the IT professional, we've tried to give them a hands-on approach to Open Source. The manual is full of screen shots and commentary about each application", stated Roy Hoobler of Connect Computing
