ALT Linux 6 Simply Review

ALT Linux, published by ALT Linux Ltd., a software vendor based in Moscow, Russia, is a distribution that originated from what used to be Mandrake Linux, now Mandriva Desktop. The first review of an ALT Linux Simply edition was of Simply Linux 5 (see Simply Linux 5 review).

Pressing F2 (on the keyboard), should let you choose from the list of supported languages.
