ADRAS Computing is offering a CD-ROM with the complete Slackware(tm)
Linux 2.2.0 distribution, plus the docs directory from tsx-11.mit.edu, for $9.

Slackware is the most popular Linux distribution, and it's been getting bigger.
The current distribution contains almost 300 MB of Linux software,
documentation, installation scripts, boot and root disks, and source code.
This works out to over 200 1.44 meg floppy disks or about 55 hours of
time on-line with a 1.44Kbps modem.  Or one $9 CD :-)

Here are some of the highlights of Slackware 2.2.0:

   o  Unix-like operating system with the usual Unix commands
   o  easy installation and configuration
   o  supports most PC hardware
   o  complete documentation on CD
   o  X Window System (XFree86 3.1.1) with graphics and applications software
   o  TCP/IP (Internet) services, e-mail, telnet, ftp, etc.
   o  modem communications programs
   o  TeX, LaTeX, and other *TeX programs
   o  tons of other applications programs, name it, it's probably there
   o  X games, text games, SVGA games
   o  C/C++ compiler and de* (gcc 2.6.3)
   o  GNU Ada compiler (GNAT), GNU Pascal compiler (gpc), f2c, other languages
   o  will coexist with other PC operating systems
   o  complete source code

The CD sells for $9.00 US.  It has already begun shipping.  For
shipping within the US and Canada, please add $3.00.  Other countries

It's important to know if this is 2.2.0 or 2.2.0.1, since there were
some important bug fixes in the 1st upgrade (thank Pat!).

I got the disks from Jimenez for his older price of $12.

It is version 2.2.0 in one of the CD's text files from
3/28/95 (unfortunately).

Where do I get 2.2.0.1 reasonably priced ?  

Thanks
