"The review of Mandrake 9.1 beta 1 went online a few days ago,
and a few hours later MandrakeSoft was releasing beta 2. So here we
go again! What's changed? What's fixed? What's added?
"The first good news is that this beta 2 comes on two CDs, so
there is a lot more stuff to be tested. I have also received some
feedback on the review of beta 1 which had some shortcomings, and
hopefully I can do better this time. Among other things I am going
to provide some advice for those that want to try beta 2 on their
own Linux box.
"However, I would like to stick to some guidelines I have chosen
for the first review: I am not going to compare this beta to any
other distribution (RedHat or SuSE or Gentoo or Debian or
whatever...), and I am going to concentrate on 'the desktop
experience'. And by the way, this beta 2 includes KSnapshot, so I
was able to add some more eye-candy. Enjoy...!"
