Filed under
MDV

I love Ubuntu and I am an Ubuntu user from a long time but the next version Ubuntu 9.10 seems to focus on wellpapers and themes !! I don't like Ubuntu's way of development. It is just focusing on themes and ignoring importent projects like PulseAudio and X.org.

In this article I will talk a little about the new features that will be in Mandriva 2010. The final version is expected to be available on the 3rd of November.

Mandriva Linux 2010 is aimed at improving the user experience for daily tasks. let's have a look to what's new :

1- New design for installer

To better user experience for install the Mandriva developers thought that installer design is quite old now and need to be refreshed to stay ahead of competition. The next screenshot shows the new design. New wizard

2- Live upgrade

Finally, Mandriva Online will be able to notify user about the new version of the distribution and propose the system to upgrade it without using installer.

It is fair to say that the rivalry between the two projects in the time since then has been strong. Predictions that one project or the other would fail have not been borne out, but that does not mean that the two projects are equally successful. A look at the two projects' development communities reveals some interesting differences. Read more
