We are pleased to announce the First Preview Release of the

Network Desktop also includes many commercial components, such as a full
featured NetWare client, a graphical Desktop metaphor, and a commercial
The NetWare client automatically shows all NetWare servers and NDS trees
in your network within as filesystem objects. NetWare filesystems are
transparently auto-mounted. Other NDS objects are viewable.
The Desktop includes fully-configurable drag and drop, file typing, numerous
graphical configuration dialogs, and system administration tools.
The font server allows any X11 application to use TrueType, Type 1
PostScript, and SPEEDO fonts. You can install third party fonts.
The Network Desktop features a graphical package-based installation to
quickly get you started and allow for easy system maintenance.
All those who purchase the First Preview Release and send in the
registration card will automatically receive the Second Preview Release
at no additional charge. The Second Preview Release will include additional
commercial tools, and improved installation and documentation.
