Mandrakesoft in the Press
Deciding to switch to Linux
Roger Mier writes: Last month I decided to switch from Windows
to Linux full-time. My reasons were many, but it really gets down
to two things: Windows wasn't working for me the way I wanted it
to, and after testing out Mandrake 10 on my server box, I decided
that if any distro was ready for the desktop, it was Mandrakelinux
10. Read more about this personal discovery. http://www.linux.com/article.pl?sid=04/08/23/1422211
