Mandriva One 2008.1 and old laptop: alas ....

Several months ago, I had a chance to try running the live cd version of Mandriva One (version 2008) on my old laptop.

At that time I was very impressed, it was beautiful, very user-friendly and everything just worked flawlessly. I really like it so much that I decided to install it permanently replacing Ubuntu Gutsy.

Later on I postponed the plan in view that the new version (2008.1 Spring) was under development, I thought I better wait for it.

So when Mandriva One 2008.1 Spring was out several days ago, I was very excited.
Although I prefer the Gnome version, I also downloaded the KDE version to try this beautiful distro.

Alas, my excitement did not last long.
