Mandriva 2009 Beta 2 - KDE 4.1 thoughts and comments

Filed under
MDV

I recently downloaded the Mandriva 2009.0 beta 2 KDE 4.1 live cd. I kept of list of things I found as I had a look around it. I only focused on the desktop.

* Cacert.org certificate not installed on live CD Sad
* Konquror missing
* Seems to have a beta Nvidia driver. Worked fine.
* 3D performance was mixed, with it not feeling as smooth as compiz fusion with KDE 3.5 does.
* Same old compiz oddities

    Open source people are generally not dirt dishers, however. Take Phil Robb of OpenDaylight , where he is senior technical director. Robb was on that MANO panel in Denver, and he spoke to me shortly afterward in an interview on ODL's new Boron software release. I specifically asked him about the "messy MANO situation" right now. His response was frustratingly calm. "I would equate the MANO space with where the controller space was three years ago," he says. "One of the great things about open source is that real code is going to be up, going to be used, stuff will work or it will fall over. But we'll fail fast and move on." (See Carriers Driving ODL's Boron Release.) So having multiple versions in process isn't a bad thing, Robb says, because it might be that one approach works better for a set of use cases than another. What the industry will come around to "sooner rather than later" is that one approach likely addresses the broadest set of use cases and will be more widely adopted, while others address niches and either are used alongside the major approach or incorporated into it.
