Perhaps the inside story here is again legal trouble of some sort.

My notebook currently runs a spin off called "PCLinuxOS", also very
popular for its ease of use. Have tried many distros over the years and
they're certainly worth you attention.

By the way, I remember experimenting with "TurboLinux", a Japanese based
distro back in those days. Their website seems to be Japanese only these

Anybody out there would comment on "TurboLinux" usage for non-Japanese

I have commitments for this month at work. Regret very much that won't
be able to attend this year. But next year I will be certainly back.

I love Japan so much. Being in Japan for me translates to crossing all
time zones back first. Stayed in Tokyo (Nishi-Shimbashi) for a month

Arigato gozaimashita.
