Ubuntu

Before even trying Linux Mandriva like any other UNIXoid noobs I was using Ubuntu 8.02 and 9.04, and boy how stupid I have been back then. Why? Because all this time Mandriva DVD was sharing the dust on my forgotten shelve until one day I didn’t pick it up.

And oh God, here we are! Now, first of all what have Mandriva that Ubuntu haven’t?

suitable installation
usable graphical disk partitioning
instant access to on-line and off-line media
smart driver system
fast boot up speed
lack of the glitches
best software compilation
best windows software adoption
runs smoothly on the elder processors
full support of on-line updates
more versatile and flexible

Zotac, already an Nvidia partner for its graphics hardware, volunteered to sort things out and has partnered with Maplin to bring the board to the UK. In doing so, however, the price has become a little muddled. $192 – a clever dollar per GPU core – has become £199.99. Compared to Maplin’s other single-board computer, the sub-£30 Raspberry Pi, it’s a high-end item that could find itself priced out of the reach of the company’s usual customers. Read more
