"Linux-Mandrake(TM) 6.0, distributed by Macmillan USA as part of their 'The Complete Linux(TM) Operating System 6.0,' has been named 'Product of the Year' in the LinuxWorld Editor's Choice Awards. Mandrake also captured first place in the server category."

"'The Complete Linux(TM) Operating System 6.0' featuring Linux-Mandrake(TM) and its 'Deluxe' and 'Secure Server' editions contain the Mandrake-enhanced versions of the popular, open source Red Hat(R) 6.0."

"According to LinuxWorld Editors, '...it does an excellent job of smoothing out some of the rough edges of the Red Hat 6.0 distribution. What you end up with is a better Red Hat 6.0 than Red Hat 6.0 itself.' The Editors cited Mandrake's automated update software and its optimization for Pentium processors as distinct advantages. MandrakeSoft claims that the latter boosts performance by 5 to 30 percent."
