Mandriva One 2010 Spring KDE

Filed under
MDV

When I optimistically downloaded the 690MB ISO file from Mandriva’s website, I had high hopes that this version would improve the steadily degrading once immensely popular GNU/Linux distribution.

When I went Linux for good, my first distro was Mandriva 2008.1 Spring Free. It was a brilliant distro, and given the choice I would run it even today.

2009.0 was good, but nothing to write home about, as was 2009.1. Cut to 2010.0 and Mandriva began to take the shape of my worst nightmares.

2010.1 does nothing to improve on it.




Trash

What the hell is wrong with people? I guess you aren't cool unless you are trashing a distribution in your reviews these days.

You have your Windows in my Linux

Although there are those who think the systemd debate has been decided in favor of systemd, the exceedingly loud protests on message boards, forums, and the posts I wrote over the past two weeks would indicate otherwise. I've seen many declarations of victory for systemd, now that Red Hat has forced it into the enterprise with the release of RHEL 7. I don't think it's that easy. Read more
