Review of Mandrakelinux 10.1 Official
"Mandrakelinux 10.1 Official Edition is a great Linux distribution. The system installation
is easier and smoother than ever before, as is the configuration and maintenance of
the system through the Mandrake Control Center and the Draktools. The installation
and maintenance tools, coupled with very good hardware support and the outstanding
user community, make Mandrakelinux very attractive as a Linux platform for novice
users as well as experienced users who don't want to fiddle with their system any
more than necessary." Read the full review here.
Mandrakesoft releases Mandrakelinux 10.1 Official for x86-64
"Mandrakesoft has just released Mandrakelinux 10.1 for x86-64, a version of its Linux
Operating System that runs on AMD x86-64 and Intel EM64T architectures. Linux has
always been ahead of the competition in this area: it was the first operating system
to support 64-bit architectures. This new release of Mandrakelinux, featuring EVP and
mixed software support, will help ensure Linux is the only reasonable choice when it
comes to 64-bit computing." More information about the new release
