Mandrake Linux 10.1 Community -- Based on 2.6.8

Anonymous Reader writes "MozillaQuestreports: Mandrake has been doing more than its fair share of making Linux suitable for converting Microsoft Windows users to Linux for some time now. Mandrake 9.x already was a Linux distribution that out of the box was very suitable for migrating from Microsoft Windows to GNU-Linux.

Looking over the information about Mandrake 10.1 and adding that to our hands-on experiences with Mandrake 9.x and 10.0, Mandrake 10.1 ought to be a product that will help to promote the migration of MS Windows users to GNU-Linux.

Perhaps the most important change might be in the X Window system from XFree86 4.3 in Mandrake 10.0 to Xorg 6.7.0 in Mandrake 10.1. The X Window system is what is used to provide graphical display for the grapical components, including keyboard and mouse functionality, of the GNU-Linux operating system such as the GNOME and KDE desktops."
