Caldera announced today that the OpenLinux 2.3 version of the Linux operating system, which contains the particularly user-friendly "point and click" Lizard install, will be made available for download from the Caldera web site from September 3. This new version of OpenLinux will cost $49.

Another version of Linux, aimed at getting less technically minded users to join the open-source revolution, is currently being previewed at the LinuxWorld Expo. RunOnCd 1.0, from a company called Easy Linux Korea, promises quick and easy installation and is even more modestly priced than OpenLinux at just $19.
