Mandriva Linux 2006 for home users part 1
Nederlandstalige versie (dutch version)Zie hier
This article was first written in dutch for the website www.computertaal.info and was published in the third issue of Digital Magazine of computertaal. I translated the article in English to give it a broader audience and this article was in fact the reason to start this website. As computertaal.info is a dutch website, the english version of this article did not have a place there, so I needed another place. Up till now I never came to creating my own website. This article was just the motivation that was needed to start it.
Up-to-dateness: The original dutch article was written in november 2005. It took quite a while before I had the time to translate it into english. When I wrote the dutch version back in november I have tried to look up everything that I was not sure about (but even then, I might have made a mistake here or there, and a lot is just my own experience which might be different for others, or even just my personal opinion). During the translation I have modified what I knew had changed, but I did not have the time to verify everything on changes since the original article. So, if you would find out that there are some things would better be modified, please let me know via my site: coulier.org.
