I have long been a Linux fan – and I have in the last few years become a fan specifically of Mandriva Linux (formerly: Mandrake) for a variety of reasons…

  • Power of Linux
  • Ease of use (designed so that the power user and the neophyte can use, enjoy, and appreciate it…)
  • Well-stocked package inventory, even in the free-distribution download
  • Cool name (MANdriva… ’cause I’m a MAN, hear me geek…)
  • Redmond doesn’t like it

So I’m very excited to download, install, and try out the new 2007 distro.

Thought I’d share that.
