Mandriva 2007 Beta 2 - short review

Filed under
MDV

Beta versions of Mandriva 2007 have been appearing for a while now and the final release is coming soon. Bugs gets fixed, new features appear, together with the new looks… Thus, we have decided to give Mandriva 2007 beta 2 “Odin” a shot. This short review covers the key changes introduced in beta 2 - the Live-CD version with GNOME desktop onboard.

The first and most noticeable change is the looks. A new theme has been developed to replace the old Galaxy theme. It’s called la Ore and is provided in a few versions, depending on the Mandriva flavor used. For now, only Gnome went through the face-lifting and actually this is the main reason we took this version for the review.
