MDV

Esfa (Eric Augé) summarizes some news on Mandriva Linux: 2007.1 sur les rails.

First of all, the first cooker snapshot should be ready for Monday, Dec. 11: David Barth's message.

It will include: the development version of GNOME 2.17.x, the latest KDE 3.5.x, Firefox 2.0, and more!

* 2007.0 Core Update #1 should provide patches and fixes not only for users of Cooker, but also for users of the official 2007.0. Esfa believes the Core Update #1 CD should be available for Christmas.
* Drakxtools were split to allow separate updates.
* Rpmdrake & net_applet & urpmi updates!
* GRUB is the new default instead of LILO!

Refracta is one of the few full-service Linux distros that makes an easy and more convenient replacement for pocket Linux options such as Puppy Linux. Not all Linux distros that install to a USB drive -- and have the ability to save files and system settings in a persistent mode -- work equally well. Read more
