You'll want to try _any_ other distro.  LWN has this to say about

   US TurboLinux Security Severely Out of Date (iDEFENSE Labs)
   iDEFENSE Labs has issued a security advisory for the US TurboLinux
   The collective security weakness of the outstanding issues listed
   below is staggering. The following is a list of the most serious
   problems for which most other Linux vendors have provided updates on
   their US sites. It represents the outstanding security problems
   associated with the limited TurboLinux distributions and updates that
   have been available on the US sites only.
   LWN has pointed out in the past that Turbolinux has not been serious
   about security updates. With luck this advisory - or, perhaps, the
   UnitedLinux effort - will help get this distributor back on track.

(from -- US distro means English distro)

For that reason alone you'll be better off using another distro.
