Mandriva Linux 2011.0 Released

Filed under
MDV

Well, "It's Been A Long Time Coming". If you're not old enough to remember Crosby, Stills & Nash singing that song at Woodstock, perhaps you are at least old enough to remember that this Mandriva release has been "in the works" for a very long time.

Despite a lot of problems, real and rumored, and a significant delay rather late in the development cycle, they have now produced a whopping baby - the ISO download is 1.7GB! The Release Announcement is rather terse - it boils down to "the release is available, it might be a good idea to read the release notes or take the demo tour while installing".

The Release Notes don't actually have all that much more to say, but the do at least contain some encouraging words about compatibility and upgrading from previous Mandriva releases. The Release Notes also explain that starting with this release Mandriva is a KDE-only distribution - no more Gnome, Xfce or other desktop environments or window managers.

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
