Actualy Mandrake does some cool stuff with the admitedly RedHat distro.
One is security. It doesnt by default open every port and send a msg to
alt.2600 with your ip like red hat does..well maybe not the last part but
it might as well.

Mandrakes ease of install can not be underestimarted. I have several non
geek freinds who are using it, one for biz.

Your mialge may vary, when it comes down to it im still a gatesian in
