[Editor's Note: Earlier this morning, Linux Today reported
the apprarent existence of Mandrake Linux 9.1 RC3 on the Mandrake
FTP mirrors. It is clear now that what was RC3 was in fact the
final version of Mandrake Linux 9.1 that was being synchronized
surreptitiously. Linux Today regrets the error and now links to the
official final release announcement of Mandrake Linux 9.1.
"MandrakeSoft, a leading provider of Linux solutions for the
enterprise and for individuals, today announced the immediate
availability of Mandrake Linux 9.1 'Bamboo' for x86 processors.

Apache 2, NTFS partition resizing, ACPI power-management,
'Zeroconf' network support, WiFi support, and much more. Mandrake
Linux 9.1 provides an unequaled level of comfort for users with a
simplified graphical installer, a brand-new 'MandrakeGalaxy' theme,
stunning anti-aliased fonts, and of course the new KDE 3.1 and
