"Aesthetically there?s a lot of changes to the basic theme in Mageia, with the neon turquoise colours of old replaced with more subtle shades of blue that help it look a lot more professional and classy. There generally seems to be a lot of these small design changes throughout the OS, with a clear focus on polish making it a lot more presentable.

"The whole design philosophy behind Mageia is usability of Linux for everyone. And while that?s pretty much a clich? in itself these days, the way the team pull it off is quite unique to this OS and its Mandriva base. The amount of control users are given in the UI is astonishing, starting with the highly customisable installer. Based on the Mandriva installer with the teams own additions, users can install a completely personalised system, with any number or variety of display environments and package types, along with incredibly advanced network and security settings."
