"The Unofficial Mandrake Linux page provides clear, step-by-step instructions for performing a variety of tasks on your Mandrake system, like setting up ethernet, installing rpms and tarballs, and compiling source code. ... There are a lot of sites with how-tos and tutorials, but the Unofficial Mandrake Linux page is the first site I've seen that keeps those who are less than ubergeeks in mind when explaining things."

"The best thing about the Unofficial Mandrake Linux site is that it doesn't try to get all fancy. Though I'm not a big fan of black backgrounds, which this site has, it is mercifully bereft of any graphics. Just the facts, ma'am."

"The UML page... explains how to do lots of cool and useful things on your Mandrake box. The most entertaining for me was removing the "shop," "search," "myNetscape," and "security" buttons from the tool bar in Netscape, and adding a "find in page" button. Trust me, it couldn't be any simpler than this guy makes it."
