Altadena, CA and Paris, France; March 14th 2003 -- MandrakeSoft today announced the release of Mandrake Linux 9.0 for Opteron® processors based on AMD 64-bit technology.

This version of Mandrake Linux 9.0 for Opteron® processors has been made available to MandrakeSoft's partners and is also available on several public FTP mirrors. Hardware vendors and other potential integrators are invited to contact MandrakeSoft at hardware@mandrakesoft.com to test the product or to receive certification.

Mandrake Linux 9.0 for Opteron® includes all the features currently available in Mandrake Linux 9.0 for x86, including a high-performance web server, ftp server, extended security services and databases. As usual, this release also offers the famous "Mandrake touch" on the desktop, which makes Mandrake Linux one of the most easy-to-use Linux operating systems.

This development will lead to a planned release in April 2003 of the 'Mandrake Linux Corporate Server 2.1' for AMD Opteron®, a product dedicated to server deployment in medium to large accounts. Later in June 2003, MandrakeSoft will release 'MandrakeClustering' for Opteron®, an easy-to-use clustering solution designed to answer needs in the intensive calculation area that will greatly benefit from the power of AMD 64-bit technology.

Mandrake 9.0 for Opteron® is one of the first operating systems available for the new AMD 64-bit processors.
