"Let's start with Mandrake. As we all know Mandrake has fallen on some difficult times financially and is in the process of restructuring. Mandrake is one of the best distros for Linux newbies and it would be a crying shame if it went out of business. So we hope that the restructuring succeeds and that the company recovers.

"Based on what we heard from Mandrake, we're optimistic about the company's chances. Kadjo N'Doua of Mandrake told us that 'For this year, we've chosen to focus on the Paris show. We intend to participate in the next US LinuxWorld shows.' N'Doua went on to say that Mandrake had just released the '...second beta of Mandrake Linux 9.1' and that the company's 'focus now is to provide users with the best Mandrake ever...'"

So keep your fingers crossed, Mandrake users! Let's all hope that things turn out well for this prominent distro. The Linux community needs Mandrake to succeed over the long haul.
