Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Mandriva seems to have trouble settling down on a release schedule. First it was every six months, then every year, and now they're back to six months.
I was also confused by their naming scheme. They've decided to name each version after the year in which it is released, which worked as long as there was only one release per year.
Thus, for this their second release of 2007, they've named it (drumroll please) "2007.1 Spring". Yeah, it doesn't really *pop* does it? Oh well. There's always 2008.
The LiveCD doesn't waste any time. After a brief bootsplash you're dumped into the live environment and asked to set your time zone, language and UTC or local time.
