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 remember Mandrake being quite popular among new Linux users and wannabes. IIRC, it was the first distro that really tried to be aesthetically pleasing with a great theme and lots of eye candy. Was actually fun to try between regular Windows reinstalls back in the day.
