Mandriva Linux 2010 (Free) Review

Nov 12, 2009, 13:03 (2 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Jim Lynch for this link. ]

"For this review I picked the Mandriva Linux 2010 (Free) version. This version contains 100% free software and weighs in at a chunky 4.3GB when you download it. Now please understand that I am not a “free software fanatic” type at all. I have no problem using distros that have some proprietary software blended into them but I like to use one that doesn’t have that stuff every once in a while.

"And Mandriva Linux 2010 (Free) was a good chance to do just that.

"What’s New In This Release

"This version of Mandriva has some new goodies and here’s a sample of what you’ll find when you install it:

"Faster start up
Three themes
Gnome 2.28.1
KDE 4.3.2
Moblin (netbook desktop environment)
Firefox 3.5
Better parental controls
Moovida (new interface for Elisa)"
