Makes me want to give it a try. Wish there had been a bit more depth to the article though. Very polished and seems to be getting a lot of reviews too. Mandrake had good usability and decent polish long before I felt that Ubuntu was usable, and even before it came into existence.
With respect to getting a lot of reviews, I have said before that I think Ubuntu 7. As people hear good things about a distribution, they often decide to try it out. Those who are inclined to write reviews will.
And it consists of free software only, which makes it good to see how much you can already do with only free software. I prefer to have a Mandriva Free type system and then add whatever proprietary I really need usually, a couple media codecs and Flash , in stead of the other way around.
One big reason is that I can make RPMs sing and dance. Mandriva pioneered the powerful, easy-to-use Linux desktop. I must admit with you. Mandrake, back then, was the first distro to work out of the box on my laptop. It was quite easy. Ubuntu is quite surprising with its brown, but the desktop is really clean and useful. My point is: the appearance is really important.
Gave it a couple of weeks, which I thought was a fair shake. It had problems with the video card and the sound card. I then installed Mandriva BTW: AdamW — you are a great resource, keep up the good work! Well, I disagree. I think it depends on the target audience. If you are targetting the uber-geeks, then you want semi-clad alien goddesses wandering on Venus. If you are targetting businesses, then you want simple lines, mixtures of basic colors, etc.
Just distribute ten or twelve themes and let the user pick.
Kreation Next - Support
Like previous releases, Spring is available in five editions , two of which can be freely downloaded. On the laptop, Mandriva detected and configured the PC Card wireless network adapter. Lots of options After the installation process completed, I was ready to sample the software. Along with a Mandriva-modified OpenOffice. Everything runs atop a custom Linux 2.
Mandriva 2007 Spring Version Review: Part I
Old version, no longer maintained: Only commercial software under a license that does not allow unrestricted distribution to the general public but for which Mandriva has negotiated an agreement to distribute it with paid copies is not available from public mirrors. It was aimed at users to whom software freedom is important, and also at users who prefer a traditional installer to the installable live CD system used by One. The package selection was tailored towards regular desktop use. Mandriva Linux Free was phased in in favor of a single edition approach with Mandriva Desktop
