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.

Depends on what you mean by "usable"; I was certainly using GNOME then.

Oh, and IIRC, the "something else" was actually WindowMaker. (Somebody liked NeXT, I guess.)
