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 started with RedHat and then Mandrake came when I got my Dell Optiplex GX1. It still has Mandrake 10 on it.

I hope Mageia will carry stuff on, it still has one of the best KDE desktops out there.. It's a pity. That was a nice linux distro.
