     Altadena, CA - March 18th 2002 - MandrakeSoft is proud to   introduce Mandrake Linux 8.2 as the most feature-rich,   multi-purpose Linux operating system ever made available to   the public. This new version of our flagship product   combines the power and flexibility of a full-featured Linux   server with the simplicity and elegance of well designed   graphical user interfaces.      Mandrake Linux 8.2 is the best "all-in-one" solution for   saving time and money with personal computers: installation   couldn't be easier with our world-famous graphical   installer, and no post-configuration hassles means that   your Mandrake system is immediately ready for work.   Depending on your requirements, Mandrake 8.2 can be   installed either as a full-featured & powerful Linux   server, or as a highly productive personal workstation.          New server features include the ability to use an encrypted   filesystem for protecting sensitive data; "kernel-secure"   adds important security features to the default Linux   kernel; and an "Enterprise" kernel delivers SMP (Symmetric   Multi Processing) and Hi-memory support (above 1024 MB) for   high-end servers. Mandrake Linux 8.2 also introduces a   quick and efficient way to set up printers and scanners; a   new file sharing feature for easily sharing files and   directories in a networked environment; and improved   "hot-plug" support that lets users install new devices   quickly and painlessly without having to reboot the system.   A new remote desktop utility, RFBdrake, is extremely   useful for controlling machines remotely within a LAN or   securely through the Internet.      New desktop features include a completely redesigned   Mandrake Control Center that serves as a central location   for Mandrake-specific tools and utilities, as well as many   new configuration wizards. Desktop users will appreciate   the task-oriented menus in GNOME and KDE which greatly   simplify locating applications by categorizing them into   common "tasks".      MandrakeFirstTime is an easy-to-use wizard that helps setup   a desktop environment (KDE, GNOME, etc.), choose a theme   and configure email settings. DrakNet, the Internet   connection and network utility, efficiently helps users   configure all types of network connections, from common   dial-up modems to DSL and cable connections.      The reworked version of MSEC, a utility for configuring the   security level of a machine (Standard, High, Highest,   Paranoid) is more powerful than ever. Also included are the   latest stable versions of KDE and GNOME which both offer   some great new features and applications such as   anti-aliased fonts and Evolution (an Outlook-like email   client and personal information manager). StarOffice 6.0 is   included with the ProSuite and PowerPack Editions.      "With version 8.2, Mandrake Linux proves that it is the   ultimate Linux experience. This new release is the result   of our four year commitment to providing the best operating   system ever. Mandrake Linux has long been the preferred   Linux distribution for individuals, but Mandrake 8.2 marks   a new step in our penetration of the corporate environment.   The features and unparalleled ease of use make 8.2 an   incredibly efficient and affordable alternative to UNIX and   Windows 2000" said Jacques Le Marois, CEO of MandrakeSoft.
