Mandrake was one of the first distros that struck a balance between user-friendliness and bleeding-edge.
As mentioned by others, they had graphical tools for things that were done by editing config files by most
distros at the time.
What isn't often mentioned is that their tools would work
from either console or X. If you were in console mode and ran harddrake, you'd get an Curses-like interface and
if you ran the same command from an X-term, you'd get a graphical tool.
