Software review â Mandriva Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Back in the 1990âs I used to use Mandrake 
| Linux as my preferred distribution. Back in 
| the day it had great hardware support and 
| looked good.Mandrake merged with Lycoris and 
| Connectiva to form Mandriva Linux.


Newbie Getting To Know Linux Distros

| I have not yet installed XBMC with the 
| PCLinuxOS install yet, but I am not 
| anticipating any headache with that.
| If you didnât know, Linux Distroâs have 
| repositories of programs to download. No need 
| to go to the internet, find something, 
| download it and install it. You just open a 
| âPackage Managerâ, look for what you want and 
| install it. It downloads it, gets other 
| programs or pieces that may be required to run 
| that program and installs it all.

| One of the great things about Linux is the ability to not only install it on
| your home desktop computer, but the ability to install it on a USB Key.
| Installing Linux on a USB Key makes it very mobile and today I am pleased to
| review a commercial version of Linux on USB key called Mandriva Flash 2008.

| Mandriva Flash 2008 Mobile USB Key is a great extra tool to have in your
| Linux toolbox.  Fun to use and easy to manage this key is a cut above the
| more open source versions of Linux on USB Key.  Support from Mandriva is
| proven and available for all who purchase the key.
