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.

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity. Although the name is similar to Linux Mint, the projects aren't directly related. Peppermint originally was envisioned as a "spicier" alternative to Mint—whatever that means! Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
