“Open Source apps are very difficult to install and configure.”

“Open Source apps require a lot of time to learn.”

“If I deploy multiple Open Source apps, then how do I get my users to
authenticate only once to access them?”

“Open Source apps are great, but how do I integrate them into existing IT
infrastructure?”

These are all common thoughts that plague every IT decision maker’s mind when
it comes to deploying Open Source applications. But what if we were to tell you
that these will all be a thing of the past? That your team won’t be pulling
their hair or banging their heads against each other (and the wall) when trying
to install and configure Open Source apps? They will no longer be hunting
through all those long and dreadful installation manuals, nor will they be
spending sleepless nights configuring them, because we’ve already gone through
all those pains for you.

Believe it or not, PCQ Linux 2008 takes away all those hassles, so that you
can pay more attention to the applications and how they can benefit your
business instead of worrying about installing and configuring them. We’ve
created virtual appliances for everything, courtesy the Open Source Edition of
Virtual Box virtualization software.

PCQ Linux 2008 this time comes with virtual appliances of an ERP and CRM
application, a web-based meeting software, a messaging and collaboration
platform, a document and content management system, and even a directory server
to allow single sign-on for all of them. Plus, there’s even a virtual appliance
for developers and yet another one for network and security managers. So you
won’t be spending time installing them, but simply sipping coffee while you wait
for them to get copied and extracted from the DVD onto your machine.

If you’re still uncomfortable running all those virtual appliances on Linux,
then we have some news for you-these appliances will also work on Windows.
Simply download the Windows version of Virtual Box from the Internet, install it
on your Windows machine and take the virtual appliances from our DVDs.

In the pages to follow, we’ve explained how to load the virtual appliances
from our two DVDs. If you’re not interested in using them, then even the base
installation of PCQ Linux 2008 from the CD will work well as an ordinary Linux
desktop. It comes with OpenOffice.org and many other productivity apps. Plus,
you can install more on it as you deem fit.

So go ahead, get a taste of different Open Source applications without the
burdens of installing and configuring them.
