Easy install, lots of software to chose from, improved look and feel.
I know some don't like Mandrake because it gets away from traditional Linux utilities but if you want a easy to use and install distro this is for you. You can be up and running in under an hour.
I am relieved to see that Mandrake has taken the complaints about Mandrake10 and done something about it. Well done!

When I reboot into this live cd based on Knoppix it recognized all my hardware right off the bat. Busted throught the a firewall and read all the window partitions. This Distro is a great portible tool an it is only 50mb. Damn windoz is up to what? a gig or two this is another example of how Linux is smaller more versitile and more adaptable that windoz. I Love Linux!
I was using RedHat and it was not the distibution for me. Mandrake installed easy is easy to use and control. Works with windoz partitions just fine. I just can't say enough about how Mandrake helps me us Linux.
