Mandriva Linux 2006 Download Edition

Reviews

I have used and written about Mandriva (formerly Mandrake) for sometime. Mandriva Limited Edition 2005 was a tremendous release that gave hope that the Linux desktop was just around the corner. Mandriva has purchased Conectiva and Lycoris and was rumored to be incorporating the best of their technology and yet I downloaded the latest version of Mandriva and was quite disappointed.

The ease of installing from DVD is great, but there seems to be a lack of many of the features. Multimedia suffers slightly without Mplayer or RealPlayer while Firefox contains none of the plugins found in 2005. Want Java, Flash or any other plugins...install them. Personally, I have no problem doing so, however for someone that is a newbie to Linux, this might be more than they had bargained for!

Full Story.
