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."

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."
