Yggdrasil Computing Ships World's First Linux DVD9-ROM

Yggdrasil Computing, Inc., a company that created the Linux CD-ROM industry, has shipped the world's first Linux DVD9-ROM, which contains over eight billion bytes of open source software. The product is designed to address the problem of having to switch among multiple discs for current Linux users. The manufacturing process may be more exotic than with smaller DVDs, but the product should be compatible with all DVD-ROM drives. Yggdrasil has now released its internally developed software for making DVDs under the open source GNU General Public License, eliminating an expensive barrier throughout the Linux industry for DVD production. The new format gives convenience far superior to a multiple disc CD-ROM collection.
