I've been using Mandrake 10.1 for just over a month now. I have to say, I love Linux!!! The only thing that I am not able to do that I was before is watch DVD's on my laptop. For some reason Xine won't play more than about 3 seconds of my DVDs before the program crashes. Not that I watch many DVD's on my laptop anyway. I love how there is no spyware! I love how I don't need anti-virus KDE with multiple desktops makes using the computer easier It manages memory better and is much faster switching programs OpenOffice works great It's free!!!!! My next computer will be an Apple... but for now Linux is the way to go! CranialCrusader Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
