Yet another linux distribution
LinuxPosted by sengan on Saturday July 25, @06:07AM
from the mergers-due? dept.
A new Linux distribution has been released. This one is called Linux-Mandrake and has nothing to do with Mandrake of Enlightenment fame. Its goal is to provide an easy to use environment for beginners, and provides out-of-the-box support for French users (accents, etc). It's based on Redhat 5.1 (with all bug fixes up to 17th July) and a fully functional KDE. Users can mount their CD's without messing with /etc/fstab. It seems a good idea as an introduction as long as it does not lead to dumber users.

Please, NO QT FLAMEWAR. It just gives our moderator more to delete.
