distroviews.wordpress: I popped the old disk in the drive and waited for the skinned bootloader to load up. Well I say that like it took a while, but it really didn’t. I selected the option to boot into Mandriva Live.

linux-wizard.net: Some days ago, Anne Nicolas announced on Cooker ML the availability of a dedicated site to allow the community to propose ideas and wanted features for the next Mandriva release.
linuxbox.co.nz: I’ve been doing some thinking about what would make Mandriva stand out and also what could help Linux distributions in general. I am thinking screenshots.
openbytes.wordpress: Whilst Ubuntu is a great distro offering “out of the box” support, there is so much more to Linux and Linux != Ubuntu!
techenclave.com: Ever since the launch of Ubuntu One there has been a lot of speculation about it.. Seeing all the response from audience Mandriva SA came with shrewd alternative and hit the nail at the right time.. Mandriva Click'n'Backup has quite a few advantages over Ubuntu One..
polishlinux.org: I decided to have a look the newest addition to Mandriva family; Madriva One 2009.1 Spring, boldly promising to bring the best of the latest cutting edge technology to your desktop. As promises go this is a big one, and after reading the release note on the Madriva website I wondered if this once probably the most popular distro is ready regain the leaser position.

jjtcomputing.co.uk: Mandriva 2009.1 was released earlier last month and I finally got round to testing it. Mandriva has always been a good distro in my eyes, being easy to use, quick and with plenty of eye-candy.
