MDV

Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring is the latest edition of Mandriva Linux, the product of more than than nine years of continuous innovation for desktops and enterprise servers.

In this release, we have integrated the most up-to-date versions of the major components, with the brand new GNOME 2.18 desktop, the latest stable KDE 3.5.6, OpenOffice.org 2.1 (with experimental 2.2 packages available), the latest Mozilla Firefox 2.0 and the upcoming Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0 beta 2.

This release also features an impressive 3D desktop software suite, with the groundbreaking Metisse desktop technology, the latest Compiz as well as all the newest and most impressive Beryl plugins - and you thought you knew what 3D-accelerated desktops looked like...

Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring is built on the solid foundation of Mandriva Linux 2007. Mandriva 2007 Spring automatically runs on a wide range of hardware configurations, automatically detected and configured out of the box by the Mandriva tools. You can download Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring One or download Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring Free, buy boxed or download commercial editions from the Mandriva Store, or join the Mandriva Club and download commercial editions of Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring as one of your membership benefits.

Take the 2007.1 Spring Tour.

That being so, I need read no further. What's the opposite of evolution? Mandriva has it in spades.

Edubuntu Vs UberStudent: Return To College With The Best Linux Distro

Importantly, there are a handful of programs that are on Edubuntu that UberStudent doesn’t have, such as KAlgebra, Kazium, KGeography, and Marble.

So ultimately, Edubuntu includes more programs that are information-heavy, while UberStudent includes more tools that can aid students in their studies but doesn’t directly give them any sort of information.

Zotac Nvidia Jetson TK1 review

The Jetson TK1, Nvidia’s first development board to be marketed at the general public, has taken a circuitous route to our shores. Unveiled at the company’s Graphics Technology Conference earlier this year, the board launched in the US at a headline-grabbing price of $192 but its international release was hampered by export regulations. Zotac, already an Nvidia partner for its graphics hardware, volunteered to sort things out and has partnered with Maplin to bring the board to the UK. In doing so, however, the price has become a little muddled. $192 – a clever dollar per GPU core – has become £199.99. Compared to Maplin’s other single-board computer, the sub-£30 Raspberry Pi, it’s a high-end item that could find itself priced out of the reach of the company’s usual customers. Read more

Over recent years, application design has evolved a huge amount. The web and native applications have become increasingly similar, and new design patterns have become the norm. During that period, those of us in the GNOME Design Team have worked with developers to expand the range of GTK+’s capabilities, and the result is a much more modern toolkit. Read more
