PRNewswire: MandrakeSoft Unveils Internet Version of Linux-Mandrake 7.0 For Immediate Download

“MandrakeSoft, the publisher of the user-friendly and
award-winning Linux-Mandrake operating system, today introduced the
latest version of its award winning solution, Linux-Mandrake 7.0,
for free download at www.linux-mandrake.com and from many mirrors
across the Internet. Version 7.0 offers major new additions and
enhancements that make Linux distribution easier to use. The
packaged version of Linux-Mandrake 7.0 will be introduced on
February 1 at LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in New York.”

“MandrakeSoft continues to contribute to the widespread use of
Linux as a powerful operating system for both high-end servers as
well as personal workstations. With their goal of introducing Linux
to as many new users as possible, a company-wide effort has been
focused on ease-of-use issues resulting in the development of many
new graphical tools, utilities and “wizards.”

“This latest version of Linux-Mandrake is an important milestone
in the evolution of MandrakeSoft and is the result of many months
of research and innovations. As part of version 7.0, we are now
offering the first Linux distribution which integrates a hard-disk
partitioning and resizing system into the installation
process.
Our new partitioning application DiskDrake removes a
major obstacle in the installation of Linux when another operating
system has previously been installed,” said Jean-Loup Gailly — CTO
MandrakeSoft.”
