An industrial consortium consisting of Bertin Technologies, Surlog, Jaluna, Mandrakesoft, and Oppida, all major European players in security, operating systems, and certification technologies, has been awarded a 7 million euro ($8.5 million USD), 3 year contract by the French Ministry of Defense. Under the contract, the consortium will develop a Linux based multi-level security operating system solution meeting Evaluation Assurance Level 5 of the Common Criteria (CC-EAL5). CC-EAL5 guarantees an outstanding security level for an operating system, and satisfies major security requirements in both commercial as well as defense and government applications.

Contest: Installing an OS, Mandrakelinux 10 Vs Windows XP What
happens when you ask average computer users, new to Linux, to
install Windows XP and Mandrakelinux 10 on the same machine with
the same hardware? "I'd say the match is a draw, or perhaps a close
win for Mandrakelinux", answers Richard Rasker. Despite some room
left for improvement in explaining options to users, Mandrakelinux
appears as capable - if not more - as XP to making customers' life
easy on unavoidable chores such as installation, hardware
configuration or networking. Read the review.
