"I've been using Mandrake Linux 7.2 for about 10 days now. At the moment that makes me an "expert." In another 10 days I'll be "old news." Life is cruel that way."

"I've always maintained that Linux could be a useable desktop OS if some of the development community worked toward that end. The Gnome and KDE people obviously feel the same way. It now takes fewer mouse clicks to install Linux than any version of MS Windows and, hey, it works right outta the box."

"Don't get the idea that the current release of Mandrake is a dumbed-down version of Linux. It's just better thought out. If one installs Mandrake 7.2 with the "Recommended" settings, one ends up with an OS that does your basic Web surfing and e-mailing. That may not sound like much but it's mostly what people do in the Real World."
