"But now I've discovered Linux-Mandrake, which is almost exactly
like Red Hat except that it's slightly easier to install, includes
more applications on the CDs included in the retail distribution,
and costs less. So I have switched from Red Hat to Mandrake, and if
you are new to Linux (and even if you're not), you may find that
Mandrake suits you, too."
"I don't mind cribbing from Mandrake, because Mandrake has
cribbed from Red Hat. In fact, Mandrake 6.0 is Red Hat 6.0 with
only a few features added to differentiate it from the original
product. If I worked for Red Hat, I'd grind my teeth every time I
saw a Mandrake CD, but under the rules of Open Source software,
there is nothing the Red Hat people can do to stop Mandrake from
reusing their work as long as they don't infringe on any Red Hat
"Caldera Systems' OpenLinux is about as easy to install as
Mandrake, but does not offer as many options."
