Mandriva 2009.1 Review

Filed under
MDV

Mandriva 2009.1 is overall an excellent transition from Windows to Linux, and comes with many great features for the tech-savvy user who wants an improved, sleek desktop look and feel as well as an abundance of programs to use.

Before its merger with Conectiva, Mandrake Linux was concerned with making the Linux desktop more compatible for the end user, easier to understand and operate, as well as all-around better looking. With those goals in mind, Mandriva Linux as it is known today has accomplished those goals of popularizing the Linux desktop all while creating an awesome user-interface that gives the utmost control to the computer user.

New Mandriva Linux Programs

If you previously used Mandriva Linux and are upgrading your system, Mandriva 2009.1 comes with a whole array of new programs to see and use. For example, Sugar is an educational environment created for kids and meant to provide a unique learning system that can be used by teachers, parents, and other educators all over the world. It contains features like the use of a paint feature, maze learning game, book and PDF reader, and a variety of other applications that are unique to Sugar.
