An open source, Linux operating system for home, office, server, and cluster users. Built upon the RHEL/CentOS core, Terra Soft and now Fixstars has since the spring of 1999 developed and maintained YDL for the Power architecture family of CPUs. This focus and dedication has lead to the world's leading Linux for the Power architecture.
What is new in this release:
YDL v6.1 brings to close a decade of support for the Power architecture by Terra Soft while introducing Fixstars' first release. What's more, YDL v6.1 expands support for Cell development with the introduction of the IBM Cell SDK v3.1, Barcelona Superscalar, and a suite of updated developer tools while maintaining the E17 desktop for a rich, dynamic, and powerful end user experience.
