This month we reverted back to our strength, the Linux operating system. We reviewed Linux Mint 7 and Mandriva 2009.1 both configured for KDE4x. These two distributions currently list as numbers 3 and 5 on the mandrivaDistroWatch download list and utilize Debian and Ubuntu technologies. Hopefully I demostrated how easily a complete up-to-date Linux installation can coexist with your present Windows system.
