Mandrake / Mandriva Linux

Mandriva Linux is considered by many to be the most user friendly Linux distribution for end users. The first release of Mandrake Linux (5.1) was in 1998 and was based on Red Hat's 5.1 release. Over time they have added more of their own tools for making system administration easier including the use of their own GUI based control center which removes the need to configure settings in text configuration files. Mandrake Linux merged with Connectiva Linux in February 2005. In April 2005 they announced a new company and product name which brings the two names together as Mandriva Linux.

Mandriva Linux and applications are compiled to be optimised for Pentium class processors which means it cannot be run on the older 386 and 486 PC architecture. Software packages are released using the RPM package management format; thousands of applications come with the install disks and other user contributed RPMs are available online.

Please note that we only sell the freely downloadable editions of Mandriva Linux and not those available to MandrivaClub members or in the boxed sets.
