TurboLinux' concentration on the Asian market has paid off as they sign what is thought to be the largest commercial Linux deal ever. Sanyo will use TurboLinux as the operating system for 20,000 medical workstations. These workstations are priced at about $20,000 each and are based on a 433 MHz Celeron processor running specialized medical software.

TurboLinux, formerly Pacific HiTech, based in San Francisco, offers the only version of Linux designed for the "double byte" characters required to display Japanese and Chinese alphabets. TurboLinux is also a leader in offering high reliability Linux clustering software.
