Mandriva 2010 packs a punch

Filed under
MDV

Ubuntu Linux may get the majority of attention from Linux watchers but there are many good alternatives available. One of those is Mandriva Linux, a version of Linux formerly known as Mandrake and long considered one of the most user-friendly of Linux versions. And now, just a week after the release of Ubuntu 9.10, Mandriva has released Mandriva Linux 2010, its newest and most feature-packed release to date.

Aside from the obvious latest versions of KDE and Gnome desktop environments, Mandriva 2010 also focuses heavily on netbook users and other alternative desktop users. Boot time is also a priority for Mandriva, as it is for most other operating system makers, and the developers say that Mandriva 2010 shuts down, hibernates, suspends, and resumes faster. The boot up procedure on Mandriva 2010 is managed by Plymouth, which also makes for a more attractive, graphical boot up process.

Finally... Some recognition!

Mandriva keeps getting better and better, but all the news is always about Ubuntu. This version packs a KDE that's so polished it defies description...

re: finally

yeah, I said in a comment here last night how nice it was. I have a gushy article coming up out there on the web at some point, hopefully next week. I'll link to it here tho. But I'm very impressed with this release of Mandriva.

Mandriva 2010 packs a punch

Hey Koolaid! Oh wait thats not punch.

64-bit version

Can someone tell me how and from where I can download the 64-bit version? The One version is for x86 only. The free 64-bit DVD download shows up as only 303Mb! Yes, I have tried several mirrors and 3 different download programs - wget, curl and aria2c. No luck. Each time the downloaded file ends at 303Mb.
Has anyone else faced similar issue?

re: 64 bit
