5-0 out of 5 stars Good but save your money
Okay maybe if your connection is slow or you don't have access to broadband you can buy this CD,but if not why bother? is freely available online as is Firefox.
I use and love both so don't get me wrong here,but the price is a little too much but then again it goes to the developers.
Ooo is a great alternative to Microsoft Office and even Star Office.It does everything the same for free! I often do my homework and essays with Ooo Writer. And Firefox is what I am using to write this very review!It's one of the best Mozilla-based browsers besides the Mozilla Suite/Netscape 7 itself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Open Office and FireFox, wonderful software, excellent value
Open Office reads and writes in MS Office 97/2000/XP formats for Word, Excel and PowerPoint and can export documents to PDF format.
One of the best advantages is inexpensive upgradability.I purchased Office 95 ($400+ dollars) in 1996.When Office 97 came out, my Office 95 software would not open office 97 formatted documents.I toughed it out till I purchased Office 2000 ($500+ dollars) now Office XP and 2003 have came out (do we see a pattern here)?I suspect that it will be much less expensive to buy a $30 upgrade to Open Office to read and writedocuments created by upcoming versions of Micro$oft Office.
FireFox: "ad ware" resistant, pop up blocker and tabbed browsing... love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great products, great price, great source!
Open Office and Firefox are two of the very best of their kind.Both give users the ability to work with the same files, websites and so on that they're used to, without the worries of bad macros, spyware, and other problems associated with the proprietary products these replace.Better yet, they're both faster, more powerful, and more up-to-date than those old dinosaurs.Perhaps best of all, these programs look and operate the same on Windows, Mac, Linux and other platforms, making it much easier if you or your family needs the flexibility.

The fact you can buy this set for a tiny fraction of the cost of just the Office suite it replaces is almost secondary to all the other features -- Open Office would be tough competition for Microsoft even if it cost the same as MS Office.

Linspire, the publisher of this collection, is highly respected for making open-source software widely accessible; if you like Open Office and Firefox, their Linspire Linux is among the best.

5-0 out of 5 stars Open Source Packaged and Marketed as It Deserves and Firefox are both fantastic products lacking one simple ingredient. Despite their technical merits, the marketing efforts for these products have not been impressive... until now.

With Oooff, that has all changed. The products are finally sold next to other respected name brands on store shelves and through online retailers, like Oooff is expanding the distribution channel of these open source products. Oooff will expose computer users that pay large sums for Microsoft Office and use the vulnerable, dull and underpowered Internet Explorer to the powerful alternatives they didn't know existed. Without a doubt, making open source software accessible is the first step in restoring a healthy and competitive software industry.

Oooff is a great idea and contains excellent products. This is a good buy and will give you the comfort of knowing that by purchasing this product, and Firefox will have an even brighter future. Kudos to everyone at Linspire, and the developers for and Mozilla Firefox! :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Windows and Linux
If you use Windows this is the way to go.Free web browser that more than 10 Million people worldwide have switched over to.None of the security problems that Internet Explorer has.Popups blocked out of the box without not extra software.The office side saves you over 200 dollars paying for Microsoft Office.And it is completely compatible with Office formatted documents and more.If you have a college student on a budget that needs a office suite then this is for them. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Hard to believe Linux could be this easy!
Trying to pick a Linux distribution can be a bit hard. You can go with the most popular (RedHat) or the most featured (SuSIE) or you can look for one that's best taloried to what you want.

At the core, all Linux distrubtions have the same OS kernal (well some may have slightly different versions) and even come with a lot of the same core third-party applications (Squid Proxy Server, MySQL Server, Apache Web Server, etc...). I choice Calderas eServer distrubtion because it is taloried for web developers/administrators.

The install is super easy, you can boot right off the CD-ROM and do a complete install on a fresh hard drive (or as a partion) in less than an hour (amazing since Windows 2000 Server takes about 2.5 hours to install). The install process is very intuitive and 100% painless, Caldera's Linux detected 100% of my hardware and found appropriate drivers, all I had to do was click the "Next" button.

Once the Install was complete, I booted the system and was very pleased to find all the server apps I needed (MySQL, Squid Proxy Server, Apache, Tomcat JSP Server) all setup with default configurations and ready to go. You even get a web-based Admin tool that lets you configure all of these servers in one central place. I did have one or two ruff-spots, but since I didn't pay a penny for the OS .... I was able to buy a good book on getting started with OpenLinux.

Highly recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great to have!
This product enables you to install and configure in relaxed environment. You just sit back and relax, rest are taken care by the installer, which is powerful.

You will recover the cost of the product with Visual age license itself. Webadmin is easy. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars As easy as Windows, and more powerful
Mandrake Linux installs effortlessly. When you need to install new sotfware onto your machine, this task is also effortless. I'm a first time linux user, and I was outright shocked at how easy the whole procedure was. People say, "sure, but Windows is easy, too." But, Windows crashes. Windows doesn't have a webserver right out of the box. Windows doesn't have enormous libraries of FREE software to install. Windows doesn't run fast on older machines. Linux does all these things and more, and the Mandrake team has put together the tools that make it easy enough for the average person to switch over with no hassle.

5-0 out of 5 stars Want to try linux? Then this is for you.
I'm a long time MS user (dos 2.? and up) and i finally decided i couldn't deal with another lackluster OS(XP). So i started researching Linux. Mandrake seemed to be getting great reviews for new users... and they were right.

The install only took me a half an hour and it detected all my hardware without a hitch. The only peice of hardware i own that wasn't linux friendly was a winmodem that came bundled with my Dell Dimension Desktop. But i've already found some online sources to help me with that problem (at the installers suggestion).

The OS comes fully loaded with an MS compatible office suit and all the tools i need to scan, edit photos, play multimedia, and burn cd's. I beleive the pro-suite boasts a full 7 CD's full of applications for whatever your heart desires. It has everything from internet chat programs (icq/aim/yahoo compatible) to applications for developing your own programs. The firewall is a big plus since i'm switching to a cable modem and i'll constantly be online. It has a bunch of window managers (gnome, kde, sawfish, etc.) and it even installed a graphical LILO that let's me choose which OS i want to run, since i'm still dual booting with Windows ME. But hopefully after i get my feet wet in the linux world, i will eventually be able to stop using that. Plus it's very multiuser friendly and supports true type fonts... the list just goes on and on and on.

I would definately recommend this product to any desktop users considering switching to linux. I've been blown away by this product, especially if your hardware can't keep up with the rigorous demands of XP... my 800mhz pc feels top of the line again when i'm running linux.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mandrake is the best distro for the Masses
Linux Mandrake is simply the easiest and best desktop linux solution that anyone can use. Mandrake provides cutting edge software and excellent support and community options. I highly recommend!

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing!
If you are looking for a good, stable, alternative operating system, then Mandrake is for you! I installed it to dual boot with Windows XP Home Edition on my new Custom Compaq (P4 1.7GHz, 256MB Ram, Dual-20GB Drives, CD-RW) and everything worked without a hitch.

Well, thats not entirely true actually, seeing as I had a PCTEL Winmodem installed on the computer (it came with it) the modem was not properly recognized. However, it was a quick fix when I got a download from Jan's PCTEL Resources (PCTEL and more winmodem drivers available at!

The included StarOffice, AbiWord, and KOffice are excellent Microsoft-Compatible office suties that I use every day. The games included are also very good and provide hours of time-wasting-fun! There is an excellent CD Ripping utility provided, Grip, and XMMS is one of the best media players out there (A clone of the popular WinAMP).

The distro (distribution) comes loaded with window managers and themes, which is wonderful! I personally use KDE 2.2.22, but it comes with Gnome, IceWM, Enlightenment, Black Box, and many more, so if you don't like the default theme, you can very easily switch at login!

I have my Mandrake Linux setup on a 4.65GB (and it only uses 2GB of it!) partition on my secondary drive and I kept Windows XP on its original partition of 17GB (the other partition on the drive is for Compaq OS restore files). I have LILO (Graphical) configured to load Windows XP as the default but with the touch of a button I can boot right into Linux, depending on what kind of a mood I am in!!!

Overall, Mandrake Linux 8.1 is the perfect alternative OS for everyone, in fact, I like it so much that I've been using it much more often than windows! In fact, I'm writing this review on it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Piece of cake!
As a long-time Red Hat user, I have to admit that Mandrake packs a strong punch. The installation process is the best I've seen: so easy to navigate and choose options, very predictable and generally humane. The default configuration is good. Gotta love those goofy penguin icons! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Do NOT buy this product to UPGRADE your old SuSE!!!!!
In general, I think SuSE has always produced a great product. I've been using SuSE since version 6.4 and It's been my primary home operating system since version 8.0. I do not use Windows at all. I'm currently running SuSE Linux 8.2 and I'm very satisfied with it. I was anxiously awaiting SuSE 9.1 and the new SuSE kernel in the inexpensive "personal" edition that I've always used to update my SuSE Linux O/S.

I soon discovered that Novell has changed things!!! !!!YOU CAN NO LONGER UPDATE YOUR SuSE Linux OPERATING SYSTEM USING THE PERSONAL EDITION!!!! I'm not sure if this changed in version 9.0 or within this version, but it was a shock to me. I've always used the inexpensive personal edition and supplemented it with downloaded software from various sites online. To all long-time SuSE Users considering buying this version, be aware that you will need to have the "update" or "professional" edition to update your current SuSE Linux system!

I'm very disappointed by this change, particularly since I spent about $30 on a version that I have no use for whatsoever. The box should have been clearly labeled to indicate that this version CANNOT BE USED FOR UPDATING SYSTEMS and I would strongly recommend that Novell place this prominently on the box in the future!!!

For USERS NEW TO SuSE AND/OR Linux WHO WANT TO GIVE IT A TRY, I can recommend this edition however. The "Live CD" makes trying SuSE painless and SuSE is still probably the best desktop Linux around for the price that's *relatively* easy to install, configure, and enjoy. As for those users complaining that it doesn't work with or like Windows, I think they just wanted a cheap Windows knock-off, but Linux is something different and has to be approached as a separate thing with its own merits. A new user will have to learn Linux just as they once had to learn Windows. It's an adjustment, but it's not so bad if you can devote a little time and energy to learning it.


5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Distro
I'm a bit surprised at the negative reviews written before this one. I do not believe this distro is anywhere near as bad as these reviewers are making it out to be. OK, here is what I got:

My computer is a personal built Intel P4 (2ghz) with 512mb RAM, 80 gig hard drive, GeForce 4 video card, SoundBlaster live sound card, NetGear ethernet card, LiteOn CDRW, LiteOn DVDRW-that's the essentials.

Now I have my hard drive partitioned roughly in half with Windows 2000 on the first partition. I installed this distro to the second partition. No problems what so ever. I can boot into windows or suse just fine with no problems. Now I used the default settings on the install (they are just fine), but you can change stuff around. If you do change where and how it loads, be sure to know what you are doing first. I suspect that is how people get themselves in trouble then blame the product. The default settings work great, so don't change'em unless you really need to.

All the programs are there, from web browsing to Open Office. The interface is nice and clean yet it is still very customizable. Open Office has opened all my windows office files without difficulty.

My wife, who couldn't care less about computers other then web surfing and email, has no problem using SUSE. She took to it right away and hasn't had any problems finding her way around. This distro has organized the programs very well and I've found things easy to find.

I think SUSE did a very fine job. I've used alot of other distros, but I always come back to SUSE sooner or later.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as 9.0 Personal
Updated Review (17 July 2004): I've been using Suse 9.1 on the IBM 600x for a few weeks now, and I think I may have been wrong about the distro. It is working real well now. I used the wireless driver, ndiswrapper and now have wireless connectivity without the linuxant driver. I had to go out to the internet to configure it, but, after some simple web searches, you can make it work.

I installed Suse 9.1 on a Thinkpad 600x and didn't get that sound anymore, so, I was wrong about Suse 9.1 creating the noise. My apologies. But, when I tried doing some simple like MAKE, it wasn't installed by default. Wireless is still a pain to install, the easiest way to do this is to use Linuxant's drivers.

I'm not sure why Suse changed the nature of their product. It seems that after using 9.0 and loving it, they created this version of 9.1 with KDE 3.2 and things work, but, not in the same manner as before. I tried using the TV Tuner software and that use to work on my 9.0 system and now it works much more flakey. I installed 9.1 on my Thinkpad T22 and the a strange noise emits from the computer. Plus, very little packages that you need are available anymore. I think Novell is trying to make it less worthwhile to use the GUI environment native to Suse and go out and buy Ximian Desktop (which the by the way doesn't install on 9.1, OS isn't recognized).

1-0 out of 5 stars Machine will not boot now
Well, after installing this software my machine sits on a black screen. You get what you pay for.

2-0 out of 5 stars personal edition is crippled
I'm a software developer who likes to use a gnome desktop on linux. With the fall of RedHat's desktop linux, and the need for a 2.6 kernel for SATA support, I decided to buy SuSE personal 9.1. I figured it would be a basic version, but I thought I could download additional packages with SuSE's great tool Yast.

Unfortunately, this Personal edition does not include gnome, and you cannot download it using Yast because SuSE has not posted the 9.1 files on their FTP server yet.

What really made this product useless to me was the fact that, out of the box, the make or gcc programs were not installed! If they were installed I could not find them in the path or on the hard drive!

Without a C complier any unix-based system is useless in my opinion.

If you just want something for writing Word docs and surfing the web using the KDE desktop (which is excellent), this is fine. If you plan on doing anything remotely sophisticated, FORGET IT. Get the professional edition (overpriced IMO) or some other distro. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars VmWare 3.0 (Linux)
At my job I use a stable Linux workstation, however we are often forced to use windows systems due to needing Microsoft Explorer for "web enabled" applications. VmWare has allowed me to continue running a stable environment yet still access the Microsoft products that are required within the company.

Beyond that, it comes in real handy for doing "proof of concept" testing. I can lab out an entire enviroment (with Windows boxes, Linux stations, etc) right on my desktop. Instead of needing 4 - 5 computers to do testing, I just need to run 4 - 5 virtual machines. The only real limitation is the amount of memory that you have!

Overall I feel that this is a great investment especially if you need stability yet can't get fully away from Windows. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excels in ease of use but still a long way to go...
I am a linux enthusiast and have been trying out new linux distributions as they come out for the past 3 years. Needless to say, linux's 2.4 kernel has made some dramatic improvments and so has KDE 3.

While RedHat is suited better for enterprise users, Mandrake and SuSe try to adapt their packaging for the average home user. SuSe 8.0 has to be the "easiest" linux distribution out there now by virtue of its great system configuration tools and streamlined installation. While Mandrake 8.2 has good configuration tools, it lacks the friendliness and wide scope of SuSE Linux.

Two features that caught my eye in this distro are:

1. Mandrake's utility for configuring Samba file sharing and browsing, and
2. Mandrake's font installer. Unattractive, out-of-the-box fonts typically plague Linux distributions, so a good font installer is a must. In tests, the Mandrake font utility was much easier to use than the KDE-based utilities that come with Red Hat and SuSE.

Overall, Mandrake 8.2 has taken some great steps. However, if you are looking for a replacement for Windows, SuSe 8.0 is a better option.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Linux yet.
I've been using Linux for about two years and Mandrake 8.2 is the best I've seen yet. Here is what you get with Mandrake 8.2.

Easy to setup with Mandrake's graphical installer drakx. Includes great packages such as cups print server, proftpd, postfix, Star Office 6, Real Player, kamera, chat, and scanner software.

You can choose from 11 desktops including Gnome and KDE. You get games, multimedia, development, and a large assortment of extra printer drivers, and special Mandrake configuration tools to get up and running pretty easy and painless.

I had Mandrake 8.2 installed in about 30 minutes, and it was near painless. It was the easiest install of any Linux distribution I have ever done.

So if you are sick of Windows, and are looking for something else try Mandrake 8.2. Even old Linux hands can enjoy 8.2.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but needs work
Linux in general has many awesome features, including efficient a high command line, great networking capabilities, security, and (in my opinion) the best file system (i.e., disk format) around. Being Linux, those are all here.

This distribution is designed to be user friendly, both in installation and everyday use, and it mostly lives up to that. Included are some form of all the most common program types for a home PC -- word processors, web browsers, mp3 players, etc. Further, the user interfaces have all been set up with a very attractive appearance. Unfortunately, some of the office software is lacking in feature that were added after this distro was release and is a little buggy.

However, there are some short commings. My biggest complaint is that the C/C++ compilers don't work out of the box -- I had to change several links by hand to gcc 3.x work, and I've never gotten gcc 2.96.x to work at all, and it still will not compile all programs. While compilers may not be desirable on production servers for security reasons, they may be needed on other systems. If you are a tinkerer / programmer, a student learning C++, or just want to compile software from trusted web-sites, be prepared for a fight. I never had this problem with Red Hat, and I think any software included should work as some as its installed. This is a major problem the guys at Mandrake Soft need to work on.

Likewise, the version of Java, though functional, is out dated, and should have been at release time, and is not even Sun Java but a thrid party version. It only good up to Java 1.2 so that many Java 2 features simply don't work.

Other than that, the only major problem has been printing. That always seems to be a difficult thing to set up in Linux. The Printerdrake program solves most of the problem, and makes the original setup easy -- I've done a lot of printing here. However, its also buggy and breaks easily -- I've lost my printing capabilities several times and getting them back has often been a major and stressful chore -- currently I have no printing and am now at a loss what to do. This may be a dangerour switch if printing is am important use for your PC. Note, though, that creating PDF files is very easy and does not require Acrobat.

5-0 out of 5 stars Customer support?
I've been running linux on my machines for several years, and mandrake is by far the best distribution that is available for those who are new to the linux experience.

A lot of these reviews complain about customer service. I, for one, have never even thought to call someone for help with linux. If you want customer service, then perhaps Linux isn't for you. There are billions of places on the internet to find the answers to your questions without calling some poor geek in California who just started learning the OS and asking him your obfuscated questions and expect to get a clear, concise, fix everything that's wrong with your installation response.

OK. that was a long point is...Don't expect customer service, and don't bother those poor people. Get on the internet and search google for the answers to your woes. That's what Linux users do ;-) I've also always thought that was a good place for some common answers too

Happy Linux'ing!
