Linux is free
The Download version is available on 15th? The Community version is available now for club members only.

I have no idea why the community 10.0 is 4 CDs instead of 3.

When the Official 10.0 comes out, will it have updated packages? Or only bugfixes? May is still two months away, it would be a shame if the Official version comes out with software 2-3 months obsolete.

If I read the Mandrake road map correctly the download version won't be available until after the official release has been made. Which is scheduled to May. So we all just better cough up some $$$ for the club membership or prepare to wait another 2 months.


from: http://www.mandrakelinux.com/en/pr-releaseprocess.php3
1) After the traditional debugging of several Beta and Release Candidates, the final version of "Mandrake Linux 10.0 Community" will be released in February/March. This version will be available for download and as a DVD-set through e-Commerce.

2) Then a Mandrake Linux 10.0 Stable branch will be opened, based on Mandrake Linux 10.0 Community. Security updates and bug fixes will be applied to this tree and will be publicly available in real time.

3) Two or three months later, in April/May, "Mandrake Linux 10.0 Official" will be created from the Mandrake 10.0 Stable branch. It will then be packaged for several products such as the Mandrake Linux PowerPack. Mandrake 10.0 Official ISO images will also be available for all contributors and Club Members; then, after a short delay, Mandrake Linux 10.0 Official Download Edition will be made available on public FTP mirrors.

The download is avaiable now, the official will be available in 18 days. Here is where I get the info:

http://qa.mandrakesoft.com/twiki/bin...ain/Mandrake10

Notice that the community release was not until Friday, but it is available now if you go to the ftp sites. Mandrake has a lot of mirrors. Sometimes you have to hit 2 or 3 before you find what you want. One I went to today only had the 1CD cooker image (3 months old).

It doesn't say whether software packages will be updated between the Community version and the Official version. Anyone know? I'm just a home user of Linux so waiting 2 months for a couple of bug fixes isn't worth it, but if updated packages that are difficult to compile are included, then I'll wait.

From the link I posted above:
Quote:
"Mandrake Linux Official" will be released two or three months after Mandrake Linux Community. This new version will include all Erratas applied to the initial release, and as a result will be particularly solid and problem-free.

Can anyone give me a contrast(i.e. the plusses and minuses) between Mandrake and Redhat?

I started with Mandrake and migrated to MDK 9.2; however, I joined a Linux SIG to learn Linux and the concensus was to standardize on Redhat- one dissenting vote, but since I also have RH 9, I elected to go with that for the time being. I am having the usual learning curve associated with most Linux 'noobies' but at age 71, would like to standardize on one or the other.

RH is not going to support RH 9 and prior versions after April, so I bought and installed Enterprise WS version 3, but if this RH process keeps going as it appears to be headed (change after change), then the company may just become a clone of the MS business model (change for change sake just to make a buck). I want a Linux OS to learn, but with so many of them, which version is recommended. Now, I don't want to start a flame war , just some insights as to the benefits and distractions of each.

Bob
