Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Updated Controversial Linux distributor LinuxOne has announced the release of LinuxOne Lite, a cut-down version of the open source OS that will run straight out of a user's Windows installation. It's not the first time a Linux distribution that works from within another OS' hard drive partition has been offered -- that honour goes to LinuxPPC's LinuxPPC Lite, launched last year, which boots right off a MacOS disk. And in any case, say Register readers, it's been possible to do this with various Linux distributions using UMDOS technology to fill the gaps between Linux's file system and Windows'. Still, the software does promise a vary simple installation procedure -- just copy the files from the CD into the folder of your choice, the installation takes up under 600MB of hard drive space and, most importantly doesn't require users re-partition their hard drives. Like LinuxPPC Lite, it provides a handy way for new users to try Linux without committing a good portion of their system to it. LinuxOne Lite costs $29.95, though it's also available for at a "special price" of $9.95 -- it's not clear why there's a special price, or for how long it will last. LinuxOne is also offering LinuxMac, an app that reads and writes data to MacOS-formatted disks, an odd facility for a Intel-oriented distribution, you'd have thought. But since LinuxOne is charging $39.95 for a beta copy of the software -- the final release will cost $99.95 -- we don't expect there will be too many takers. ® Related Stories LinuxOne takes more than a leaf our of Red Hat's book
