iXsystems announces distribution agreement with Micro Center

After the distribution agreement with Fry’s Electronics, iXsystems has announced (10/12/2007) an agreement with Micro Center:

“iXsystems announced today a distribution agreement with Micro Center, a leading edge provider of computer products, whereby all Micro Center stores nationwide will carry PC-BSD Version 1.4, Da Vinci Edition. The agreement marks the first time that the PC-BSD operating system is made available for purchase at Micro Center.

PC-BSD is a fully functional desktop operating system based on FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE. FreeBSD is one of the most pervasive UNIX-like operating systems in the world. It is widely recognized as the most stable and secure server operating system available today.

PC-BSD will be stocked in 21 Micro Center store locations, which can be found all throughout the United States

said Theresa Garner, General Manager of FreeBSD Mall.

As a result, this historic agreement will ensure that PC-BSD, the open source desktop operating system running FreeBSD under the hood, becomes available to a mainstream market at a nationwide level.

The increasing availability of PC-BSD, especially through this agreement with Micro Center, will enable first-time users to successfully experience the superiority of this operating system firsthand,

said Kris Moore, Director of PC-BSD Software Development.

Unlike most other open source operating systems, PC-BSD’s programs are self-contained and do not have shared dependencies. As a result the installation of one program does not necessarily mean the possible disruption of another. The end result is a trouble-free user experience for both technical and non-technical users.

PC-BSD is expected to become available in all Micro Center stores nationwide by Wednesday, December 19. Micro Center has stores in California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia.”
