What would you regard as the two operating systems of choice? Windows and Mac OS? Would you include Linux in that question or are you a die-hard Windows user and the choice is simply between Windows XP and Windows Vista? Linux has developed in to more of a mainstream operating system in recent years, with companies such as Mandriva and Canoical using the Linux framework and adding an easy-to-use front end. With major applications such as Firefox, Thunderbird and OpenOffice available for the Linux platform, there's no reason why you couldn't turn to free software to drive your home or business computer.
In the last week, two new big Linux releases have been made available. First up is the huge Mandriva 2007.1 'Spring Edition' DVD-based distro. Next is the popular Ubuntu 7.04, desktop distribution. This fits on a single bootable CD.
