Turbolinux is a Japanese Linux distribution targeting Asian users.
The Turbolinux distribution was created as a rebranded Red Hat distribution by (then) Pacific HiTech employee Scott Stone. Scott was the lead release engineer through version 3.6.
PHT changed its name to Turbolinux in June 1999 to better identify with its flagship product.
After several rounds of layoffs, Turbolinux sold its name and distribution to Japanese software corporation SRA in September 2002. The former headquarters at Brisbane, California closed its doors shortly thereafter and all operations were relocated to Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan.
