 GaŽl Duval and Mike Angelo Discuss HP & Mandrake

More good news for Mandrake and the Linux community. MozillaQuest Magazine(mozillaquest.com) reports: Mandrake Linux 9.1 is available on HP desktop PCs starting at $349. When Linux and MS Windows operating systems are pre-installed on new computers, Linux and Windows are on an even footing. The GNU/Linux OS with the KDE desktop suite is superior to MS-DOS-based and NT-based Windows desktop environments. HP's announcement is good news for Mandrake, for Mandrake fans, for the Linux community, and for computer users in general. The more computer system vendors and OEMs that offer a pre-installed GNU/Linux operating system option the better. Mandrake 9.1 is an excellent choice for pre-installed Linux computer systems. If you feel that you need to use any of the Microsoft Office applications such as Word or Excel, rather than the comparable, free, Linux applications such as AbiWord or OpenOffice, you can install CodeWeavers CrossOver Office so that you can run the Microsoft Office applications on your HP-Mandrake Linux computer. In other words, you do not need to do Windows anymore.
