"Linux seller MandrakeSoft has had to delay shipment of
its newest version of Linux because of problems in moving
manufacturing to the United States.
Mandrake Linux 8.1 is available as a download, but the first CDs
of the product were supposed to ship "by the end of September, the
company said. In an e-mail message to those who have ordered the
CDs, the company said it ran into unexpected delays after deciding
to move production to the United States.
"Getting 8.1 production up and running in North America has been
a slow and expensive process," the message stated."
