Mandriva Linux 2008.1 Beta 1

Filed under
MDV

Mandriva Linux 2008 is the ultimate version of Mandriva Linux. It is the fruit of the convergence of three technologies: Mandriva, Conectiva and Lycoris. Mandriva Linux 2008 is also more easy-to-use, more user-friendly and more powerful. It is ideal for the needs of all customers, from the beginner to the SOHO user. Mandriva Linux 2008 is available in three editions: One, Powerpack and Free, for both i586 and x86-64 architectures. One and Free can be downloaded free of charge from official Mandriva mirrors and via BitTorrent. Mandriva Linux (formerly known as Mandrake Linux) was created in 1998 with the goal of making Linux easier to use for everyone. At that time, Linux was already well-known as a powerful and stable operating system.

With this innovative approach, Mandriva offers all the power and stability of Linux to both individuals and professional users in an easy-to-use and pleasant environment. Thousands of new users are discovering Linux each and every day and finding it a complete replacement for their previous operating system. Linux as a server or workstation has no reason to be jealous of any other more established operating systems.

Free/Open Source Free Software licensing govern the development and redistribution of Mandriva Linux. FOSS licensing provides everyone the right to copy, distribute, examine, modify and improve the system as long as the results of these modifications are returned to the community. It is this development model that allows Mandrivalinux Linux to collect the best ideas from developers & users from across the globe to result in a rich variety of techniques and solutions.

LG's got a flip phone that runs Android Lollipop

Flip phones aren't just for retro hipsters and the elderly anymore... well, actually they kind of are. But they're super popular in Asia, and now you can get one that'll run the latest apps: LG's Gentle flip phone. The faux-leather adorned device is running a bleeding edge version of Android 5.1 Lollipop and packing 4G LTE. Otherwise, it's not exactly a power-user's dream with a 3.2-inch 480 x 320 screen, 3-megapixel rear camera, 4GB of (expandable) storage and 1GB of RAM. But for just 20 million won ($175) it would make a fine second phone, provided you live in Korea -- it's unlikely to come here, and similar flip phones can be pricey to import. Read more
