    MandrakeSoft, SuSe add new life to Linux

    Two of the major distributors of the Linux operating system, Germany's SuSE and France's MandrakeSoft, are set to release new versions of their software, improving multimedia features as well as introducing more advanced versions of the underlying core technology.

    Personally I think SuSE' release looks better planned, delayed untill after KDE3 and Gnome2 is out. Mandrake 8.2 may be more stable for that reason, but SuSE will have the features, and SuSE has the advantage of it being a .0 release, so errors inducted by adding of new features (like KDE3) is partly excused, and can easily be fixed in the next release. Mandrakes 8.x series however is coming to an end, and is expect to be very stable.

    I'm glad Mandrake is using KDE 2.2 in their next release. This gives them time to make sure it is the most stable release of the 8 series.

    I see that Mandy 8.2 was released on March 18. Has anyone tried it? Is it much better than 8.1?
