Geeknews.org has just reviewed Mandrake 7.0 . . .
“There has been some hype about Mandrake being a more user-friendly Linux distribution when compared to it's contemporaries, Red Hat Linux being the most oft-cited. I have had some experience in the past using Mandrake 6.x and I thought it was okay, but felt it was clearly Red Hat Linux with some extra user-oriented applications and a bit more… Pentium optimization. I can safely say that with Mandrake 7.0, the good people over at MandrakeSoft have pieced together a distribution all their own.”
“The biggest changes are both obvious and non-obvious. Firstly, they have totally redesigned the installer that they use. In fact, they really create a revolutionary look to installing Linux via X – thanks to their new DrakX graphical installer. On the underlying side, they introduce a good deal of improvements to things, among them hardware detection/device configuration in the form of Lothar.”
