Digging through some old files on a decommissioned personal computer, I found the following press release.  Linux kernel 2.2? KDE 1.1?  Man, that goes back a ways:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CALDERA SYSTEMS SHIPS OPENLINUX 2.2 PROVIDING FIRST LINUX
GRAPHICAL ENVIRONMENT FROM INSTALLATION TO
ADMINISTRATION FOR LINUX AND WINDOWS USERS

Next Generation Point and Click “Linux for Business” Solution
Nominated for Best of Comdex Award
and is First to Include:
New 2.2 Kernel, KDE 1.1, LIZARD Install, glibc 2.1 Libraries, DHCP Client,
PowerQuest Partitioning (Caldera Edition) with BootMagic 4.0
and OpenLinux 2.2 PocketDoc Reference Guide
OREM, UT  April 19, 1999  Caldera Systems, Inc. today shipped OpenLinux 2.2., the
recognized technology leader in “Linux for Business” solutions. OpenLinux 2.2 is a 32-bit,
proven, tested, stable and supported Linux-based business solution that includes the full Linux
source code—with matching binaries—plus integrated programs and tools featuring an increased
auto probing for supported hardware, expanded hardware peripheral support and 270 “Best of
Class” developer, server and workstation packages. OpenLinux 2.2 includes remote management
capabilities and integrates into existing systems, running on Intel-based PCs 386 and up —
including laptops — with at least 16 MB of RAM. Included in OpenLinux 2.2 is the StarOffice
5.0 office suite with word processor and spreadsheet providing compatibility with comparable
Microsoft Office applications.
The award-winning KDE 1.1, COAS (Caldera Open Administration System) and
graphical install Lizard (LInux WiZARD) provide easy point-and-click installation making
OpenLinux 2.2 the easiest Linux to install (less than 15 minutes) use, and administer. OpenLinux
2.2 allows users and businesses more familiar with Windows and networking environments to
evaluate Linux in a non-threatening, non-destructive way. Using PowerQuest partitioning
(Caldera Edition), OpenLinux 2.2 can be installed and removed without a trace. Inclusion of the
DHCP client enables plug and play interaction with corporate LANs without requiring UNIX
knowledge or experience. Using COAS (integrated into KDE 1.1), system administrators and
users can administer the box through a point and click interface without going to the command
line—unless they want to.

“OpenLinux 2.2 has taken Linux for Business to the next level,” said Ransom Love,
President and CEO of Caldera Systems, Inc. “By listening to our business customers and end
users we’ve made using Linux much easier—in both the install and documentation. OpenLinux
2.2 provides a point-and-click graphical installation that greatly reduces Linux time investment
and frustration. With KDE 1.1 and the install LIZARD—OpenLinux 2.2 leapfrogs anything out
there and will propel Linux further into the enterprise.”
Darrell R. Bingham of Enhanced Software Technologies agrees.
“It's also the type of simple installation needed to encourage others to make the switch,”
said Darrell R. Bingham, Manager of technical support for Enhanced Software Technologies.
“It has a menu-driven installation capable of detecting most system components. Even
our sales and office management staff installed it; no yelling, no looks of despair, and no flying
computer parts—just straightforward installation. OpenLinux 2.2 may prove to be the tool needed
to put Linux in the hands of the masses.”
glibc Compatibility
OpenLinux is the first “Linux for Business” solution to offer the 2.1 glibc libraries in a
“self-hosted” (matching source and binaries) environment. Self-hosting allows corporate
developers to optimize binaries for secure, high-performance turn-key solutions. With the
inclusion of the new 2.1 glibc libraries, OpenLinux 2.2 offers 100% forward and backward
compatibility with glibc 5 applications. This compatibility enables VARs, systems integrators,
corporate customers and users to run and upgrade those libraries when convenient for them.
COAS
The Caldera Open Administration System builds upon the current Linux administration
system by providing full graphical administration of the existing Linux administration
architecture. Users and system administrators can utilize both the old way of using Linux/UNIX
and the new graphical environment of COAS with out requiring redundant entry. Unlike other
Linux graphical administration environments—COAS keeps track of both sides.
PocketDoc

The OpenLinux PocketDoc reference guide provides mobile fingertip information
without the bulk of a manual. Fitting neatly into a shirt pocket it provides Linux quick tips
ranging from OpenLinux 2.2 installation to Linux Web sites, support materials and user groups
worldwide.

I get my shield handed to me the first time around against the boss, but I come back and play it a little smarter.

Okay, the ending was pretty predictable, and the jokes were pretty old, but this was still a fun ride.

This is one of those stupid ideas that won't let go until you do something about it. So, I did. Apologies in advance. This is my character Minerva Tuscani cosplaying as Classic Rogue of the X-Men.

Apologies for the spots in Commander Davis' office where the action stops. I got called away from the computer. The trials of living with your parents.
