Shuttle goes Linux: small form factor (SFF) PC with SUSE Linux from Novell

Shuttle goes Linux: small form factor (SFF) PC with SUSE Linux from Novell

Launch in Germany, further European regions planned

Shuttle Inc., SFF PC market leader and manufacturer of multi form factor solutions, now offers fully configured systems, based on Intel technology, featuring Novell SUSE Linux operating systems. The new aluminium SFF PCs can be individually configured in the Shuttle Systems Configurator, and come, ready-to-use, with a dependable 24 month Pick-up and Return service.

Individual configurations for Business and Home

The two operating systems, utilised by the new models, each have their own advantages. On the one hand, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop benefits from Novell’s years of experience in the business and service fields, as well as offering maximum levels of security and stability. On the other, the free openSUSE comes up trumps with its versatility and costless development by the openSUSE community. Both systems use “YaST”, an established and easy to use administration tool for system configuration.

As the office and home have different requirements, two variations are available as basic configurations, with additional hardware optional as required. A wide selection of processors, memory modules, and drives are available, and desired configurations can be chosen on the Internet, and then quickly assembled by Shuttle.

Shuttle LinuXPC SD3002W featuring SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 SP1

As well as optimal user-friendliness, the SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 SP1 also offers seamless integration into existing systems, as well as its own clever applications, such as OpenOffice for use in the workplace. It can also be extensively employed, whether as a classic office PC, a flexible working platform, or tailored to individual requirements - for example, for use as a thin client. This well designed operating system is also compatible with Microsoft Office files, and has office applications such as a web browser and email client already integrated. Furthermore, the LinuXPC SD3002W comes with exclusive updates and downloads from Novell.

Shuttle LinuXPC SD3002Q with openSUSE operating system preinstalled

openSUSE has all the functions expected of an operating system designed for use in the home. As well as being easy to operate, it features applications for surfing the Internet, sending emails, chatting with friends, organising photos, watching films, listening to music, and creating documents and tables. It offers everyone, regardless of whether they are new to Linux or enthusiasts, everything they need to get started.

The new, silver fully configured systems with preinstalled SUSE Linux further convince with their DDR2 RAM, support for multiple core CPUs, I.C.E. Heatpipe cooling technology, PCI Express x16 and PCI slots, gigabit LAN, 8-channel audio, FireWire, and a powerful 250-Watt power supply.

Both models are immediately available in Germany. Shuttle’s recommended retail price for the basic configurations are EUR 529 for the LinuXPC SD3200W, and EUR 489 for the LinuXPC SD3200Q (incl. 19% VAT).

Configure both systems in the Shuttle Systems Configurator now:
