5-0 out of 5 stars the "Hacker's Unix" of Linux distributions
One day there was a little boy named Linus Torvalds. He liked to play with computers and get them to do things. And on one very special and fateful day, he was astounded by a friend of his who was using something called UNIX. It was better, faster and did more than anything he'd ever seen before. "Where can I get this UNIX?" he asked? "And for how much?" That day he learned that not everyone could use UNIX. It was expensive. So, being a savvy, industrius and inventive little tyke, Linus set about writing his own version. It would be called LINUX, it would be every ounce as powerful, and would be free! And every little boy and girl could make their own improvements because he would give away the source code! ...Of all the LINUX distributions, SLACKWARE has been defined as the most 'UNIX'-like. It is also among the oldest, most developed and often the most advanced of the LINUX flavors. All of that aside, I found it to be the most useful way to learn to use LINUX. Let me explain... The installer is a script, with a less than impressive 'DOS' looking interface. But do not let the look fool you. Under the hood, it is every ounce the musclebound goliath you want it to be. Don't judge a distribution based on this; they may look different, but most installers have the same general set of options. Pay attention to the screen when linux is booting whether off of floppies or CD. This will tell you some valuable things (like what additional kinds of starage devices the kernel has already recognized in your machine). This makes less work and less confusion later on. If you have another drive with Windows on it, SLACKWARE can usually detect it and make it available from within your LINUX session. If you can set up SLACKWARE, you will do fine. Setting up XWindows is a great first lesson in your new environment. Find out what kind of hardware you have in your machine. SLACKWARE takes nothing for granted. You will need to tell XWindows what kind of mouse, video card and monitor you have, and d which display settings you would like to use. Why all the fuss? When you are done you will already have a good working knowledge of how LINUX and XWindows works. Using SLACKWARE means that you have a better idea of what's going on inside LINUX. Other distributions tend to remove you from the command prompt, which is LINUX in it's truest form. This means that you don't really get to see how things work, and you're not 'really learning' anything but the difference between Windows and XWindows. XWindows is not an operating System. It is a Shell or window manager. Explorer.exe and it's related components are the Windows Shell (the start button, Task Bar, System Tray, Desktop and its own kind of Window Manager). This is where the similarities end. LINUX is a much more powerful OS than Windows. Hands Down. The operating system is the command prompt. You need to learn the LINUX command prompt in order to understand how LINUX works. This will help you know what's wrong when something doesn't work, and it will empower you with a dynamic command of the LINUX OS. You almost can't set up SLACKWARE without actually learning how it works. The books are fine and the 'man' command can save your life, but nothing is as rewarding as realizing that you are the reason it works. The learning curve here 'is' the reward. Other distributions do not offer this kind of trial-by-fire approach, but when you come out on the other side of the installation of other distributions, you haven't learned much, if anything. Q) Why learn SLACKWARE? A) It's the Most like UNIX. It costs next to nothing. And it is a first rate powerhouse of an OS. Oh yeah, and you might actually 'learn' LINUX. SLACKWARE is for those of us who want to know how things work and how to 'make' things work. like what, you ask? Almost 90% of the internet is composed of UNIX or LINUX clients and servers. No kidding, when asked what he thought of the growing public interest in the internet, Bill Gates said, 'It's a phase'...'that will pass'. Boy, he was wrong on a GALACTIC scale! But this gave LINUX developers the opportunity to write the protocols and environments that are the internet as we know it. LINUX out-sold Windows in Japan last year in new OS purchases. Why? You can make LINUX anything you want it to be. Router (internet traffic) software and Tivo (record days of Television at a time digitally) machines and the SONY PlayStation2 (Everything from videogames to DVD player to internet box+ a lot LOT more) software development kit use LINUX. For example, after Microsoft had owned HotMail for awhile, they decided that it looked silly for them to be running a mail service on LINUX. So they set everything up on WindowsNT. And crashed for three straight days. Now it is being run on LINUX again. Enough said. If you do not want to know how things work, but want to use a powerful distribution, use something else. But if you are serious about 'learning' LINUX, SLACKWARE is as close to UNIX as you can get. And that's what's keeping us all connected.

4-0 out of 5 stars Choose your Slack carefully!
It isn't clear from the product description if this is the CDRom only or the book and CDRom. Locally the CD Rom only goes for ...and the book and cdrom for ...[$10 more], so I suspect this may be the CD Rom only.

I have the Dummies version, which just came out May 2000. The book is great! Not as dummed down as most dummies books. It sells for ... on Amazon.

There was a review on the Slackware distro book (with CD Rom) in boxed set in Maximum Linux. They said the book was a great improvement over the prior book. I haven't seen it, so I can't comment. However, for what its worth the books that came with other distros - Mandrake, Suse and Caldera - were pretty useless. Too detailed and arcane for a beginner (like me) and not comprehensive enough for someone more experienced.

The moral dilemma is that the only way to support Slackware, which is apparently really just one guy who works really really hard, is to buy a distro from Slackware, i.e., this distro or the one with the book. Buying the Dummies book doesn't compensate the guy who maintains Slackware at all, since there are no royalties due to the GNU license and the only way to pay your bills is to sell an actual product, that is to say, this kit.

I have probably, at this point, put more money into supporting Linux distros than most, since I buy boxed sets rather than books, or disks from reprint houses etc. But with Slackware the Dummies book was just too helpfull...

5-0 out of 5 stars Slack rules.
Slackware is the greatest Linux distro available. Within a few minutes a person can have a fully working e-mail, web, ftp, and telnet server running. Add to that the rock-solid stability of Linux, this baby is good.

5-0 out of 5 stars All you need from a good operating system
I successfully installed this product more than once and without any particular problems. A simple personal computer can become a full featured UNIX workstation with all that is required in a good, stable OS. It is true that some knowledge of how the system works is required in order to manage the whole "business" of configuring everything you need, but I always found all the information I needed in the HOWTO files, included in the distribution. The KDE Graphic environment meets all the needs of even the most demanding users, and it is largely customizable. If you just think that C, C++, Fortran compilers are included, toghether with powerfull editors like emacs and xemacs, there is no comparison with any other "Windows" equivalent, with their "outrageous" prices. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Xandros 2.0 and Kissing Windows Goodbye
What is an operating system? In simple terms it talks to your keyboard, mouse, video display, hard drives, printer, modem, and software. What I love about Linux but Xandros Desktop Deluxe version 2.0 in general.
Easy to add applications that did not come with it. It plays my audio cd's, dvd's, mp3's. I can surf the Internet and answer e-mails. I can customize the desktop. I can add skin's to applications that will allow. It knows when I plug in my camera, or external USB hard drive. If an application hangs, I can press Ctrl+Alt+Del keys and then kill the process that is hanging. But this is very rare for Linux applications. But then I can run certain MS Windows applications and this does happen to them. But no reboot of Xandors. It is not perfect, but it works for my needs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Kissing Windows Goodbye
Kissing Windows Goodbye

I have used Linux Xandros 1.0 for over a year now. Xandros always starts up and shutdown, not like hanging sometimes ME. It is solid and stable to use every day. I have made user accounts for myself and son. Xandros has a switch user facility which comes in handy, I can allow my son to log on and my session keeps working in the background. He can check his email and browse the Internet, then he logs out. And I switch back to my session. We each have our own settings and desktop. Plus our own software.

I could go on and on, but will write more when I get version 2 installed. I give the product five stars and technical support the same. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Simple, easy, for Newbies to Linux.
I have used some version of Linux on my home computer for about two years now and I can honestly say that Linux, to include Linux Mandrake 7.1 has come a long way. Linux Mandrake 7.1 provides the user with one of the easiest installs and setups. Compared to Suse's YAST2 and Caldera's Lizard - Mandrake has configured a good setup tool.

Linux Mandrake 7.1 also provides several good programs and applications that will help the new Linux user get accustomed to the world of Linux. New users who are coming from the Windows OSes will feel a bit easier using Linux Mandrake.

On my machine I tired several different installs, using different cards. I swapped out my Voodoo Banshee card and threw in a generic 8MB video card - it found the card but there was a huge difference in the display quality of my installation process. I then re-installed it using two different sound cards, a Sound blaster Live! and a ESS Generic sound card - both were found but the ESS had more support and installed easier.

Partitioning was the easiest it has ever been - gone are the days of having to learn the commands of FDISK or partionmagic. The partioning of the Linux Mandrake also makes it easy to install DOS/WIN partions.

Although I liked Mandrake 7.1 and I would recommend it for novice users - I found that an install from Suse 7.0 was cleaner and provided me with the applications, especially the server applications and programs, that I use on a regular basis.

Mandrake 7.1 is a good place to start. The price is amazingly reasonable and there is more support in publications for Red Hat compatible products -so it is a no brainer for newbie Linux users - go with Mandrake.

5-0 out of 5 stars Linux-Mandrake is the best of both worlds.
I have tried 2.1, RedHat 5.0, 5.2, 6.1, 6.2, Corel Linux 1.0, Caldera OpenLinux 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, and Linux Mandrake 7.0 and 7.1. Of all these, Linux Mandrake 7.1 is what got me to settle down and actually start using Linux instead of playing with it.

I had to get rid of the cruddy winmodem I had just bought, but it was a pleasure to experience Linux fully once I had rid myself of it and bought a real modem.

Linux Mandrake makes things easy. I don't want to spend hours configuring everything right off the bat. My aim is not to become a Linux guru. I just want a decent OS that works. As time goes by, I'll learn the rest, but for now I just want to be able to boot up in a reasonable amount of time, and not crash constantly, and not cost an arm and a leg for a bug infested waste of time, money and disk space like Windows.

If you feel similarly, and you can read (there's books, web sites and documentation all over the place if you have a question), then Linux Mandrake is for you.

The price is reasonable. It works. It comes with everything and then some. It's easy to use. It handles more load on the same hardware. It's much faster. And you don't need to reboot unless you want to. Nuff said.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a difference!
Tired with all the trouble of Windows I wanted to take the risk of changing for a new OS. A friend recommended me Mandrake since I've never used or seen Linux and I was amazed how easy it was.

First it recognized all my hardware, even my HP CD writer. Also using it wasn't hard or complicated. I strongly recommend this product to people that have no idea of Linux. It has never shown an error or illegal operation, as Windows constantly does.

I even want to get in the developer stage but that will take some time. Thanks for bringing us users a strong and confident OS.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to Install, easy to use
Mandrake 7.1 installs nearly everything automatically. Its configuration tools make updating your system pretty easy. One caveat is that if your monitor is not in the monitors database you will learn more about your monitor than you wanted to know.

If you have an inexpensive win modem you will want to get a full hardware modem. If they plug into a PCI slot they're Win modems, if they plug into an ISA slot they're hardware modems. Best Data and Creative labs both make 56K ISA modems that work under Linux.

The installer will resize a windows partition and set up linux partition for you. You can also use lnx4win which will make a linux file system inside a windows file. You can then install without changing any partitions.

There are many excellent How-To documents included.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great distro for the new and experience user alike
As a long time RedHat user I decided to try Mandrake which is built upon the RH distro. I was pleasently surprised and I'm now a convert. The installation process is straight forward and includes an easy to use GUI to do the dirty work. Once I installed it I found that a lot of the goodies I've collected over the years was already installed! I've installed this on several desktops and on two laptops without a hitch, I highly recommend it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Linux Distro! Great for windows users!
I have had several different versions of Linux before, including Red Hat 6 and 7, SuSE 8, and now Mandrake 9.1. I can easily say that this is the best distribution hands down. I installed this on my windows XP machine, using another (blank) hard drive (XP is on the master drive). The install detected the blank drive and auto-prtitioned it while keeping XP in tact and untouched. The only change that was made to the windows drive was the boot record, which was changed to LILO. This allows the user to select which operating system to load at startup. The whole install went without a single problem. The windows NTFS drive was automatically configured to mount at boot, allowing access to those files (although I had to create a shortcut to /mnt/windows on the desktop, but that was easy enough). The only other thing that required input was that the sound was turned way down in the mixer for some reason.

Overall, this is a GREAT linux disro. Tons of apps, seems to be solid as ever, great display/graphics/fonts, easy to manage, and fast.

5-0 out of 5 stars My brother and I really love it!
I first see this Mandrake Linux PowerPack Edition 9.1 on my brother's notebook. Together with my brother, I found it so flexible and durable. It can recognize MOST plug-in peripherals so easily without any problems. Since my brother works in an IT company, we both agree that Linux is THE BEST choice for us. Even, my old Linux 2.2.6 performs far better than the leading brand OS, especially in networking. The best of all, it is cheaper but performs far better than the leading brand OS. If you need a durable, flexible, compatible, and dependable OS, try this Linux!

5-0 out of 5 stars The best Mandrake yet!
Mandrake has done itself proud with this release. One of the biggest changes that you'll notice is the icons and the fonts. Extremely professional looking and very easy on the eyes.

I am blessed with hardware that Mandrake runs on nicely, and I have yet to have any major problems that could not be fixed with Mandrake.

The Control Center has been enhanced and everything--including the new Galaxy theme--is right here waiting for you to try. Mandrake makes Linux for the masses and this version has reached critical mass in my opinion.

I've tried Suse, Red Hat, and Libranet Linux distros and this one can't be beat for ease of use and having the latest software.

Red Hat is stable as well but their paranoia about MP3 licensing issues and mpeg-related concerns keep their distro a bit off pace with Mandrake.

Mandrake recognized my hardware, LAN card, printer, video card and monitor without a problem. Just turn your printer on along with your computer when installing and Mandrake will do the rest.

Functions nicely as a desktop workstation or a file server. It can't be beat for the quantity of its tools or the quality of the distribution.

This may be the release that puts Mandrake financially back in the black.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, but some small issues
I will start by saying that I am still new to Linux, but I have tried several different disto's and so far Mandrake 9.1 has to be very nearly my favorite.
The install is amazingly simple, and extreamly fast. The interface is very nice, it doesn't have the look of BlueCurve from Redhat (a bonus in my opinion).
And everything is well layed out. My only real complaint involves the control center. Here Redhat still has Mandrake beat.

5-0 out of 5 stars Overall, excellent Linux Distribution
First of all, I gave Mandrake Linux 9.1 5 stars because there is no option for 4.5 stars, and I rounded up. Second point, I am using the download edition, so I am reviewing a product that is no as extensive and complete as the Power Pack. Third point, I am giving ML 9.1 5 stars as compared to the state of the art in the Linux world.

Having said all that, Mandrake Linux is the only OS I run both for work and for personal use. Some of the bright points in 9.1 include:

(1) Easy to use. The Control Center makes administration of your machine very simple, including software installation, upgrades and removal (see point 4 below). The documentation is nice and simple to understand.
(2) Ready to use. It works out of the box, at least for what I use my computers (and I use them a lot).
(3) It is current. They have the latest available software.
(4) Urpmi, Mandrake's front end to RedHat's RPM, makes your life so much easier regarding software installation and management.
(5) General purpose. It is ready to be used as a server, as a workstation, as a home machine, as a Laptop operating system.
(6) Fonts are very nice in 9.1
(7) Easy security/bug fix updates, from the Control Center (you pick a download mirror and Mandrake does the rest for you)

One caveat: Mandrake has a slight tendency to be more concerned with having the latest than with having the most stable. But I had no problems so far. Only a few isolated episodes in one machine, that may as well be hardware related. I used to Red Hat, another excellent distribution. I find Mandrake more intuitive and I am spending far less time on administration of my computers since I switched to Mandrake 9.0

In summary, I consider Mandrake Linux an outstanding operating system, and very likely the best Linux distribution overall. ... Read more
