The new graphically-enhanced Linux-Mandrake 7.0 (Air) operating system has just been released and is now available as a free download from our website at www.linux-mandrake.com and from many mirrors across the Internet. The complete packaged edition, available for sale in early February, contains more than 2000 applications, new manuals and 100 days of support at the price of $55 US.
Altadena, California - January 13, 2000 - MandrakeSoft continues to contribute to the widespread use of Linux as a powerful operating system for both high-end servers as well as personal workstations. With their goal of introducing Linux to as many new users as possible, a company-wide effort has been focused on ease-of-use issues resulting in the development of many new graphical tools, utilities and "wizards". «
This latest version of Linux-Mandrake is an important step in the evolution of MandrakeSoft and is the result of many months of research and innovations. For example, we are happy to offer the first Linux distribution which integrates a hard-disk partitioning system into the installation process. Our new partitioning application DiskDrake removes a major obstacle in the installation of Linux when another operating system has previously been installed. », said Jean-Loup Gailly - CTO MandrakeSoft.
