My family is hooked on Windows. I’ve thought about trying to coerce them into switching to GNU/Linux, but the very thought of what I’d have to put up with for the next year just makes my head ache. I love Linux though, and so this opposition doesn’t stop me from wanting to setup a Linux machine at home. So I took the opportunity to replace my LinkSys router with a custom Linux router.

The folks at Mandriva are hard at work preparing the next incarnation of MandrivaLinux systems for home, office, and server applications. Mandriva Linux 2007.1 Beta 2 was announced yesterday and I wanted to take a look. I didn't spend a lot of time in it due to a personal showstopper, but what I saw really nice looking. So, as brief as it may be, I'd thought I'd share my experiences with my visitors.
Tex and the Ripper gang are proud to announce that PCLinuxOS 2007 Test Release 3 (Almost there) is now available for download and testing.
