Turbolinux's package selection is not very different from what you'd find in other distributions. Turbolinux is not a bleeding edge distribution, so the packages you get are often not the latest versions. Usually, distros include older packages to make the distribution more stable, but that doesn't seem to be the case with Turbolinux. Several applications crashed while I was writing my review. After an update the problems seem to be gone, but this gives me the feeling the distribution was not tested well enough before it hit the shelves.
TurboLinux is not very lively. There is hardly any news in their Web site at the moment. 5 news items span a period of 2 years and 40% of these is about the love affair with Microsoft. The flagship product at the moment — the one which appears at the front page — is about Windows. It says in the accompanying press release : “ Because all users are unified under a single management scheme, business controls and compliance can be better adhered to, and because of the partnership between Turbolinux and Microsoft in jointly developing this new software with explicit patent permission, a safe and secure mixed Turbolinux and Microsoft Windows environment can be provided. ”
