Mandriva Linux 2006.1-0.3 (Beta): a Bad Joke?!

Filed under
MDV

The public beta of Mandriva Linux 2006.1 (0.3) for x86 (32-bit), released on Dec. 26, looked appalling to me.

The standard CD version includes 3 CDs plus a Live CD. It's supposed to come with:

X.Org 6.9 final
KDE 3.5.0
GNOME 2.12
OpenOffice.org 2.0.0.
and a lot of improvements.

I was very interested on the progress Mandriva's having on the GNOME part, albeit it's primarily a KDE distro.

I got the ISO files from ftp://mandrake.mirrors.pair.com/Mandrakelinux/devel/iso/2006.1/i586/

Another good mirror is:
ftp://ftp.belnet.be/packages/mandrakelinux/devel/iso/2006.1/i586/

Then the delusion showed its real face...

How I Use Android: Android Central Editor Emeritus Phil Nickinson

In the meantime, I was able to convince Phil to step out of his metaphorical kitchen for a few minutes to chat about how he uses Android in his day-to-day life.

So what devices does someone with so much knowledge carry around in his own trousers, and how does he make the most of what they have to offer? Enough with the suspense already. In his own words, this is how Phil Nickinson uses Android. Read more

Best Android Phones Under 5.7 Inches

There's no question that Samsung hit a home run with its Galaxy S7 line. We already think the smaller GS7 is the best phone under 5.2 inches, and the larger, curved-screen Galaxy S7 edge is our pick for the best phone under 5.7 inches. Why? It takes everything we love about the smaller phone and makes it bigger — but not too much. Read more
