The new wave of Linux distribution’s is finally here. The latest versions of Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSUSE and more are already released, and Mandriva completes the list with it’s latest offering, version 2010, which was also recently released. How does it compare? Nothing short of amazing, yet again.
My history with Mandriva has always been a mixed one. Back in the later days of Redhat’s free desktop releases, and even the early days of Fedora, Mandriva (then Mandrake) was always a mixed bag. Lately however, Mandriva has been putting their best foot forward consistently, and Mandriva 2010.0 is no exception to that rule.
First of all, I downloaded the KDE version of their “One” LiveCD. My test machine only has 2GB of RAM, so I decided to stick with the 32-bit version, although I normally use 64-bit whenever possible.
