TITAN LEV Overview


Published on

TITAN LEV (Linux Extended Version) - a breakthrough Linux distribution designed for users with Windows experience, combining the best of both Linux and Windows. It provides the most comprehensive solution for users looking for a Windows style experience on low-cost hardware such as Netbooks with no hardware restrictions.

TITAN LEV enables PC manufacturers, OEM’s and vendors to be more competitive in the Netbooks market. Currently, the cost of Windows 7 increases the Cost of Goods (COG) for a typical Netbook by 20-30%. Using TITAN LEV this cost will be saved and it will dramatically improve profits in this market. To ensure acceptance of this alternative, TITAN LEV provides a total package that includes an operating system bundled with a suite of 150 applications for personal, home and business use. It requires less CPU and memory resources than Windows, looks like Windows, runs Windows applications, provides migration tools from Windows and is fully supported. Affordy supplies TITAN LEV to hardware manufacturers and PC vendors that pre-install it, using private label, as their Linux operating system for their price sensitive customers. This enables them to increase their market share by providing these customers with a superior solution that is applications rich, economical, Windows compatible and easy to use.
