Mandrakelinux was created in 1998 with the goal of making Linux® easier to use for everyone. At that time, Linux was already well-known as a powerful and stable operating system that demanded strong technical knowledge and extensive use of the "command line". Mandrakesoft saw this as an opportunity to integrate the best graphical desktop environments and contribute its own graphical configuration utilities and quickly became famous for setting the standard in ease-of-use and functionality.

Discovery is the easiest and most user-friendly Linux distribution for first-time Linux users. It includes a hand-picked selection of premium software for office, multimedia, and Internet activities. The graphical desktop environment for Discovery is KDE. The menu is task-oriented, with a single application per task. With Discovery 10.0, Mandrakesoft offers all the power and stability of Linux to both individuals and professional users in an easy-to-use and pleasant environment. Thousands of new users are discovering Linux each and every day and finding it a complete replacement for their previous operating system. Linux as a server or workstation has no reason to be jealous of any other more established operating systems. Features include:

  • OpenOffice.org
