Mandriva Launches Mandriva Flash Based on Mandriva Linux 3D Desktop Technology

Filed under
MDV

Mandriva launches Mandriva Flash, the first Mandriva Linux Live USB key. Hit the right key with Mandriva Flash. Bringing its long experience with Live CDs, Mandriva aims to offer the best performing live system. All you have to do is plug in the USB key, turn the PC on and the Mandriva Linux 2007 operating system is ready to use in no time, with all you need for office work, Internet and multimedia tasks.

The main advantage of Mandriva Flash is that it provides a full-featured system that requires no installation and - the icing on the cake - fits in your pocket. This is the most mobile distribution ever, as per the company.

Once Mandriva Linux 2007 is started, users can store their personal data on the 2GB key (more than 1GB available for user files). System configuration, preferences and data are all saved to the key (in contrast to live CDs, which can't store this data). Another great advantage: in contrast to live CDs the CD/DVD drive remains available, allowing the user to read or burn a CD/DVD while using Mandriva Flash. Moreover, the boot and loading process is much faster than with live CDs thanks to the USB 2.0 support of the key.

Calamares 3.0 is a major milestone, ending the support for the 2.4 series, which recently received its last maintenance update, versioned 2.4.6, bringing numerous improvements, countless bug fixes, and some long-anticipated features, including a brand-new PythonQt-based module interface.
  • Due to Popular Request, KDE Neon Is Adopting the Calamares Graphical Installer
    KDE Neon maintainer Jonathan Riddell is announcing today the immediate availability of the popular Calamares distribution-independent Linux installer framework on the Developer Unstable Edition of KDE Neon.

Indeed, Calamares is a popular installer framework that's being successfully used by many distros, including Chakra, Netrunner, and KaOS.
