Mandriva Linux: What Windows should be

Filed under
MDV

For the last 15 or more years I have been waiting for Linux to be as user frienly as Windows. As more and more impressive software came out for windows, this grew stronger and stronger. Now, I am finally satisfied. I installed and instantly saw that my life was about to get easier. I spend about 16 hours a day coding and googling. So, my operating system must be top notch. I also do nto like to sit and type commands all day either. But with Mandriva 2009, I do not have to!

It happens everytime my girlfriend goes to MySpace. She gets infected with malware, despite running Spybot SD and AVG. Great job, now I am going to have to clean her PC out again right? Wrong, I formatted the drive and installed Mandriva.

No Q/A

Mandriva has the worst Q/A of any distro I've ever tried. Bugs bugs and more bugs.

Sorry you feel that way.

I am sorry that you feel that way. The only bug I have seen is with watching FLVs online from time to time, which is the fault of Adobe. Everything else has been fast and stable for me.

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity. Although the name is similar to Linux Mint, the projects aren't directly related. Peppermint originally was envisioned as a "spicier" alternative to Mint—whatever that means! Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
