Hello everyone.

I'd just like to get your opinions on using Mandrake Linux.
I'm not sure If anyone has used: Mandrake Linux before, But I thought I'd give this topic a go, and see if it gets any replys.

I'm just intrested in the main console. How It's also adapted.
I've been told by a few friends that Its the easiest going linux, meaning it must be for learners to linux like myself.

I'm been using Windows for the past 4 years. I quite enjoy Windows but think It's a time to move onto something else.

If anyone would like to post a reply please do so, I'd be intrested in hearing what you have to offer us. *I'm not aware on the version I'll be using yet, But am sure I'll use an up to date one.

Mandrake is by far one of the easiest for beginners to install and to learn on.

Definitately one of the easiest to install from. I've found it to be KDE-centric, don't know if that matters to you.

Check out Fedora as well, I used the Anaconda installer, and was really impressed. There have been a lot of reported probs with FC2 however, I haven't used it, Core 1 is the only Linux partition I have at the moment.

Nah, core 2 is at least twice as good as core 1, but there are some issues with particular programs (wine requires a lot of settings to be changed before it will run)

I recently installed Mandrake 10 on two of my machines.
I can't say enough about it.
Ditch the winBlows and *nix it all the way.
I can't believe all the free software that comes included with this OS.
These freeware programs snort/nmap/nessus, etc. rival the 3000 u$ windows competition.
I am sure once you have managed the learning curve of *nix you'll never go back to the virus ridden, buggy, crashy, plateau known as Windows.
I even run a windows emulator for progs that are on no other platform.
I said good riddance to Windows as soon as I realized I had stepped through the door of *nix.
Learning *nix is time well spent.

peace,

haans :)

I currently used mandrake 10.0 and I must say, it seems very user friendly and very easy to work with. Although I have noticed a few bugs
