Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Somewhere in 2001, I bought a computer magazine which came with a Linux CD. I had heard of Linux before, but while we did have broadband back then and was technically capable of downloading a Linux distribution, this method was far easier. This was my first foray into Linux - it was Mandrake. Now, though, it seems the curtain has really dropped for the French Linux company.

I think Mandrake was the first Linux distro I used. I remember using Redhat and SuSE around the same time too but I think it was Mandrake that I settled on before discovering Slackware a few years later (and now Arch)
