Mandriva Releases 2011 Beta 1

Filed under
MDV

In what could be seen as a coincidence, Mandriva announced 2011 beta 1 today, just one day after Mageia released their alpha 2. As you might guess, the similarities are distinct, but then there are significant differences as well.

The Mandriva 2011 beta 1 came in live DVD formats for 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, unlike Mageia which was an install image. There was little if any difference in the install or first boot routines between the two, including the same "corrupted partition table" error (remind me to check on that). Mandriva 2011 beta 1 retains all the graphics and images from 2010.x Free and are unlikely to change until closer to final. But what's up with that orange windec and highlighting color?
