Breaking news! Mandriva is not dead. Or maybe it was and came back to life, not as a zombie (Bernie Lomax) this time, but as a modest, yet persistent dog that simply refuses to give up the race.
Yes, the Alpha 1 of Mandriva 2012 has recently been released. Its code name: Tenacious Underdog!
I dowloaded the i586 .iso to give it a try on a Virtual Machine and see if it works better than Bernie Lomax, its predecessor, did. By the way, the TP ran like a charm in my humble opinion. Can the underdog outperform Bernie?
