Remote control for virtualized desktops

A reviewer on one of the Web's many hardware sites has installed Linux on an AMD Athlon K7 and reports good results from the experience. William Henning, over at CPU Review, installed RedHat 6.0 on a 600MHz Athlon machine after some problems with Mandrake 6.0. He believes the problems he had installing Mandrake are to do with it being optimised for the Intel Pentium platform. There were also some problems with lack of drivers, Henning reports, but benchmarks he ran showed that Linux trounced Win98SE. He awards Linux for the Athlon 9.5 out of 10. ®
