4-0 out of 5 stars The power of Unix for your computer...
Most computer users have heard of Linux. How it's stable, secure and rarely crashes. And this is true. And most know that Linux patterns itself after Unix in structure and function--though not in source code. Linux has risen to be THE alternative to the Windows hedgemony.

But there are other OSs that inherit the same great characteristics of Unix but are not Linux: they're known as the BSDs.

Without going into a lot of history, suffice it to say that the BSDs--FreeBSD in particular, have the same structure and function of Unix and at the same time, are more Unix-like than Linux. This is due to a more mature code base and BSD's historical relationship with Unix. I say "BSDs" because there are three variants available: FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD. Of the three, FreeBSD is the friendliest and the most desktop-ready.

FreeBSD has many of the same great programs that Linux does but the difference is to be found under the hood.

In Linux, the kernel is really "Linux" with a bunch of programs from the GNU project sitting atop of it. But with the BSDs and FreeBSD in particular, the WHOLE OS is one monolithic system--so the system is tightly integrated and its packages work well together.

Another key difference with the BSDs: the version releases are farther apart. This is because the BSDs are concerned with stability--not necessarily "cutting edge" packages. The result: a very stable operating system.

There are some things to watch out for, however.

Although many of the same desktop environments and programs that are found on Linux exist for FreeBSD and the BSDs, they do not have the wealth of software available for them that Linux does. This is because of the way BSD is developed (not by many different programmers as Linux is but by a team of individuals who decide what will and will not be included in a release), and because it's not as visible as Linux is right now.

But thanks to the BSD porting system and its Linux emulation layer, many of the same programs found in Linux can be made to run on FreeBSD and the BSDs in general. However, it does take some know-how and skill to make this happen. Linux is definitely easier to use and is better supported than the BSDs are in the software/applications arena.

With this said, I believe that, eventually, the BSDs and FreeBSD in particular will begin to gain in popularity as they match Linux in both ease of use and support.

In the meantime, if you're looking for a stable system and want to try something different then this is the OS to choose. Its stability, security, and close relationship to Unix is as good as it gets.

Highly recommended as a server or desktop.

5-0 out of 5 stars FreeBSD 5.2 is a mature, professional operating system
I use FreeBSD 5.2 on three separate computers, one personal and two commercial web/email servers (as well as several V4.9 and V4.6 server computers). It is easy to install and packed with features. It works with almost any software and hardware. It will run pretty much any Linux program, as well as many Windows programs via WINE (but don't think you are going to run graphically intense Windows games like Battlefield 1942 on it -- that is not what it is made for). Many folks think it doesn't work with P4 Hyperthreading, but it does. For me, the strength of FreeBSD is threefold: (1) It is extremely fast and stable. It uses virtual memory better than Linux or Windows. The TCP/IP stack is THE industry standard. (2) The "port" system is easier and more flexible for add-on program install than the Linux "RPM" system (although RPMs can be used as well). (3) Things are laid out in a very intuitive and usable fashion, without a lot of clutter. The only problems I have run into after numerous installs have to do with the X-Window graphical interface to the OS. Sometimes this has been a little tricky to set up. I have to admit that I tend to use FreeBSD with good CPUs and tons of memory, but crappy old video cards because the machines are usually used as business servers where video means nothing. I recently installed 5.2 with a new 64MB NVidia MX420 card and the X-Window system set up very easily. If there are any other negatives for newbies, the default is to not load support for sound cards, and loading sound card support is not trivial.

Some Linux distributions (SUSE 9.0 gets kudos here) are slicker, especially when it comes to the ease of setting up sound and the X-Windowing system. However, most folks using FreeBSD are not looking for a Windows alternative, but rather are using it as an extremely competent business back end server, or as a flexible and fast high-end workstation OS.

I cannot say enough about this OS. My 11 year old son uses it, so newbies shouldn't be put off too much by my comments on sound and graphics here. Semi-pro and pro computer folks who are using Linux should definitely give it a spin -- after you load a few "ports" instead of "RPMs" you will be grinning from ear to ear. Experimenters and hobbyists will find thousands of programs that are professionally designed and rigorously tested and ready to install.

If I had to live with one OS, this would be it. My servers are typically taken down by DSL issues or power outages before this OS locks up. It is a better OS than Linux or Windows in my opinion. I recommend reading "Absolute BSD" by Michael Lucas if you get serious about this OS. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Caution: try mandrake move evaluation disk first.
Have been Mandrake user, loved it. Dual booting with
Win 98 & Win 2k & briefly with WinXP. But not since latest
version which is incompatible with dell machines. Swapped
out the LG cd-rom with a new Sony cd-rom befoe installing
and failed to install. Hope they fix the problem.
Moved to SuSe Linux which installed easily after trying
their evaluation version which can be downloaded from their
site as an iso image. (Takes a long time due to many dropped
server connections even with dsl.)
Mandrake has a downloadable evaluation iso image called
Mandrake Move. Downloads faster. Try before buying.
Best wishes.

5-0 out of 5 stars An easy switchover from Windows-based computers
I've been a Windows user since the early days of 3.1. That said, I've seen the system grow larger, more unstable and less secure with each new version. WinXP is no better, although everyone seems to tout how great it is. Ask any 12 year old hacker and they'll tell you just how easy it is to hack or write a virus for it.

Now, I'm not a total stranger to Mandrake, having briefly used version 7 a couple of years ago. I installed it two weeks before I sold the PC. I was so impressed with Mandrake I told all my friends about it. Unfortunately for me, I built my next PC and some of my hardware wasn't supported by Mandrake, so I dropped it.

Fast-forward to today. I got a copy of Mandrake 9.2 and installed it. I'm just as impressed with it now as I was three years ago. The GUI (graphic user interface for newbies) is crisp and clean, and reminds me of Macintosh graphics. The menus are very easy to use, as well as configure. This is one of the more flexible aspects of Linux. Windows never will give you the kind of flexibility that Linux does.

When it comes to stability at security, there's not much better out there. Linux stability goes without saying. We're always hearing about people who run linux systems for months without a reboot. These stories are not only fantastic, they're generally true as well. In fact, it's not unheard of for a system to be up for a year or more without a reboot.

With rock-solid firewalls, Linux systems are much more secure than MS based systems. The administrator (root) password can be entered if you're making a configuration change, without having to be logged in as such. This makes quick changes to the system fast and painless. User accounts are also more configurable than Windows systems because user accounts can be tailored per program. i.e. One user may have a higher level of program access than another, while a third could be an admin for that program.

Because Linux is open-source, there are literally thousands of people looking at the very code the programs are made up of. If they see any vulnerability in the system, it's changed immediately. This is an inherent problem with MS, as they have only a small number of software engineers who actually see the code. The more people look at a problem, the more likely it is to be solved.

Mandrake has done some good things with the kernel (base Linux program) by adding their own flair. The purchased versions of Mandrake come with some excellent software like VMWare, which allows you to install Windows in a Mandrake 'subsystem'. You lose some performance because Windows runs in a Linux 'Window', but I think it's worth it.

The program comes with the install CDs (7) which contain the OS and literally thousands of programs to make using Mandrake complete. It also comes with a starter guide to help you get up and running. The only thing I'd like to see in this pack is the reference manual that's included with the Pro version. This book contains lots of information that should be readily available to all users, not just the pros. Online documentation is also difficult to sort through in a pinch. Still, I can't give it less than 5 stars for the reasons I've outlined.

Summary: It's easy to install and configure. It's ultra reliable and secure. It's inexpensive. All-in-all, it's a great program.

4-0 out of 5 stars Another Mandrake version w/ some updates...
I am a big fan of the Mandrake distribution and have been for some time now. It's no wonder; Mandrake has been the friendliest desktop distro going. And for the price here at Amazon, you'll get a better deal than what you would pay at the Mandrake store.

That said there are a few things to look out for in this version.

First, if you have Mandrake 9.1 and it works for you, you may want to hold off upgrading as there aren't too many improvements easily noticed by the user--unless you count any eye candy and icon changes.

One of the big "gotchas" to look out for is a bug concerning the menus.

If you do a clean install of Mandrake 9.2 (or even an update), on many systems, after the initial install and after running Mandrake Update, your menu items in the K panel and elsewhere will cease to function and disappear. It was pretty unsettling to me as I did not know how to fix this.

The Linux community to the rescue.

After you install version 9.2 and run the bug fix update, restart your machine and boot into single-user mode. At the prompt type "update-menus" and your problem will be fixed. All of your menu items will be repopulated never to disappear again.

Other than this minor inconvenience, it is a solid version containing the latest version of OpenOffice.org's office suite as well as the latest versions of the many programs and apps that normally come with Mandrake Linux.

I was especially impressed with the USB support. I plugged in a USB flash drive and not only did the system recognize and configure the drive, it saved and copied files without incident.

No complaints there.

Again, if you have version 9.1 and it's stable for you and does all that you need it to do, you may want to hold off until the next version comes out. But if you decide to take the plunge, it is another nice product from the good folks at Mandrake and worthy of your consideration.

4-0 out of 5 stars An improvement over 9.0
This is not a review but comments to things I encountered when working with the system.

I have a download version of 9.2 (3 CDs) and I used extensively version 9.0, also download.

Pluses:
Much better support for sound: totem program manages to play all my Windows files.
Better support for external hard disks: my FireWire Maxtor 40GB works very well, and I even can use portable USB FireLite Smartdisk 40GB (both configured automatically!). In fact, it works so good that all my coping on windows partition I do in Linux!

Do not like:
- Connection to the internet still very slow compared to Windows 98SE. I have both Mandrake 9.2 and Win 98SE on the same computer and both connect the same way to the internet - through the router as LAN. Still,
- Certain programs are not easily available (though they may be in full version), like xine; there are some other programs that "dissapear" but I can not recall now. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Works fine (mostly), but ...
Out of curiosity, I installed Suse 9.0 on my four-year-old computer. The installation went well: My hard drive was partitioned with no loss of Windows 98 data, and the double boot system works well. Suse recognized my cable broadband connection (but not my dial-up modem) and was able to get my printer operating (but not my scanner). I would love to sing the praises of an open-source product, but face it: Windows is easier to operate, is more attractive, and more versatile. Linux has a reputation for stability, but I'm told XP is a great improvement in Windows stability. I will continue to dabble in Suse but have set Windows as my default operating system.

Follow-up, four months later: The more I dabbled in Suse, the less I found to like. The KDE desktop is dog-slow, technical support is a joke (and not a very funny one) and the manual is of little help in figuring out such procedures as how to download from the Internet. Eventually, I stopped choosing Suse when I booted up. I have just bought a new computer with XP and have no plans of installing Suse on it.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's good, but I like Red Hat 9.0 better
I am new to Linux in general, and thought I'd try another distro (especially since I can by an os for $40 or less with Linux vs. M$ at several hundred a pop). I have installed Red Hat and Mandrake on my DELL 2600 Inspiron laptop prior to trying Suse. As a user who got very use to point and click installs from M$, I have to say that the install is painless and fairly quick (for an os install). After clicking on a few prompts your os is on it's way to installation. I installed Suse on it's own hardrive, I did not try to dual boot it. Although I am a fan of the painless install and setup, I was not crazy about the layout, and themes. I then decided to replace Suse with Red Hat. Overall, Suse is a good os for a Linux newbie to use, the install/setup is not very difficult, but I do suggest to a user to read the manual/documentation before installing (especially if you are trying to dual boot w/ Windoze). The desktop is similar to M$' and a person with good PC skills should be able to get up and running almost immediately. However, I still like Red Hat's (despite it now becoming Fedora) desktop more. My suggestion is to try several Linux distributions, and see what suites your personal taste.

5-0 out of 5 stars I don't know what they are talking about
Multi loading OS's on a computer isn't something people do every day. It's not hard but it's easy to mess up if you are NOT paying attention and have little experience with that sort of thing.

If you are installing JUST SuSE on your computer then it works great. Sure I've had computers in which "oddball" hardware doesn't work on it. SuSE on the other hand should be considered bleeding edge on the hardware support side. They are into it all and do a great job.

More bang for the buck with RedHat? What does that mean? I get an extra rpm or two? Listen. Look at what they both provide and make a decision. Anything someone else has you can get for SuSE. I was surprised with YaST. I loaded some stuff that was missing from the distro. It selected a site in Chicago by default. Took only a few moments with my broadband connection (Cable 3 Mb pipe).

Fedora RC2 was crap. Better than RC1 but still crap. Debian and Slackware are pretty good. For a desktop install I would recommend you wait for SuSE 9.1 actually. It comes out this month I understand (I've already downloaded the source rpms. It's HOT)

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Distro
Good Linux Distro.
If you are buying because people says Windows is unstable and unsecure, you're doomed. If you've dreamed having Unix machine home, might better to go with Debian, Gentoo, or BSDs. If you like computers, building PCs, and thought "I gotta be little more cool", then this is for you.
Unlike company says, Linux is not replacement for Windows. If something doesn't work under Windows, it's Microsoft's fault! If something broke under Linux, it's your fault. If you are genius, there's a source code so that you can fix it. If you are normal people, there's lots of community in web that some kind genius spend some time with normal people giving out some help. If you are rich, buy yearly support from consultants or company and pay more than for Windows.

5-0 out of 5 stars Linux = advanced. Novice computer users should stick to Win
Don't listen to these "horror stories!" Suse specifically instructs users to back up their computers before installing a new operating system when partitioning different OSs. Yes, 9 is designed to work with newer users, but Linux itself is designed for advanced users. For those of you that don't like Suse, stay away from Linux, cause this is as easy as it gets. If you don't like Microsoft, get a Mac. ... Read more
