  • Value for money: 8
  • Overall: 8

"Despite the enormous strides Linux has made into the traditionally Windows-dominated home PC marketplace over the past two years, one niche remains the sole property of Microsoft's OS: gaming. [...] Mandrake Linux 8.1 Gaming Edition is an attempt to shrink the huge gulf between Linux and Windows, by providing the opportunity to play the Windows code of many top games directly from within Linux itself.", explains the reviewer.

Mandrake Gaming Edition was launched on October, 22, 2001. This product currently sells for $69 at Mandrakestore. review
