"MandrakeSoft, France's long-time favourite boxed Linux distribution in terms of retail sales is now also number one in the US, according to company officials citing PC Data figures at the Third Annual Linux Expo in Paris last week, writes Bruce Tober."

"As a result of its "phenomenal growth" the company has just opened an EMEA office in London and will open an office in Germany in another month."

"In addition, it announced to rapturous applause that it is making all its training and support modules open source. The company is putting all those materials on the Web. "People can take them and use them at will for free. They can add to them and can even take the courses and then take the exams online," said Barry Cochrane, EMEA sales director."
