Mandriva Desktop 2011 review

Filed under
MDV

Mandriva 2011, code name Hydrogen, is the latest desktop edition of the popular Linux distribution. Released August 28, 2011, it marks a new direction in the development of Mandriva desktop distributions. Where there used to be three versions of previous editions (Mandriva One, Mandriva Free, and Mandriva Powerpack), the Release Notes say that only two versions (One and Free) are available for download.

That is what is in the Release Notes. In reality, however, there is only one version of Mandriva 2011 and it is available as an installable Live DVD edition for 32- and 64-bit platforms, each weighing in at about 1.6GB and 1.7GB respectively.

This article offers a detailed review, based on test installations (in a virtual environment and two real computers) of the 32-bit version. Shown below is the boot menu, which gives you just two options. I think a third option, “Boot from local drive,” should have been added.
