Welcome to the Mandrakelinux Community Newsletter -- dedicated
to keeping you up-to-date with the latest Mandrakelinux-related
news & info.
Mandrakelinux 10.1 Beta1 is available!
At last something to make your summer hotter, far better than
all these linux unaware suntanned chicks and chaps you would like
to get along with on the beach. Forget them and go back home, fill
up your fridge with soya drinks (or your favorite one, but remember
that fast assimilated sugar shortens your life expectancy). It is
time to test your new air conditioner limits, switching on all the
computers sitting around to test this new Mandrakelinux 10.1 beta!
More details and links are available here.
Also, Mandrakesoft needs to know what you do to improve the
Mandrakelinux interface on your computer. Complete this survey and
tell us what you need.
New Mandrakeonline is available!
The new Mandrakeonline provides a wide range of valuable
services to easily take care of all updates, on a range of
Mandrakelinux systems, at a low cost. Read all about it here.
