Well, given that Mandrake filed for bankruptcy earlier this year... The kind of begging that I have seen Mandrake do to try and get their users to send them some money is kind of undignified, and doesn't look good if you are trying to get your company taken seriously but the kind of people who sign the cheques for your new and reliable linux based network. When was the last time you saw Mandrake being used on a server in anything larger than a small business anyway? -- James jamesk[at]homeric[dot]co[dot]uk If all the world is a stage, where is the audience sitting?
