"Yesterday, I downloaded the KDE Live CD edition
(mandriva-one-2009-KDE4-int-cdrom-i586.iso). When the download was
done a few hours later, I was excited-enough to immediately
test-drive it via VMWare Server that was installed on my Xubuntu
desktop. So what makes Mandriva 2009 so special? What’s not
to like about it? Here’s a little walkthrough, plus later on
my initial impressions."
