Two New Linux Distros
Linspire and Mandriva have released new versions of their Linux distros to the world. You can download each from their web site. Linspire wants you to pony up $50 for their full version, or get their stripped down roll-your-own Freespire version. Mandriva has released Mandriva Linux One 2008 -- formerly Mandrake -- providing a full Linux OS on a single CD. They offer a PowerPack version for $50 that includes SQL and web development tools as well as a more complete set of proprietary drivers. In my quest for The Perfect Linux Desktop I'm drawn to Mandriva.
