Mandriva Linux 2010 (Free)
For this review I picked the Mandriva Linux 2010 (Free) version. This version contains 100% free software and weighs in at a chunky 4.3GB when you download it.
What’s New In This Release
This version of Mandriva has some new goodies and here’s a sample of what you’ll find when you install it:
Faster start up
Moblin (netbook desktop environment)
Better parental controls
Moovida (new interface for Elisa)
Smaller install size
Ext4 default file system
RPMDrake search & interface improvements
I’m happy to see the updates to Gnome and KDE. The beefed up parental controls are also welcome. I’m also glad to see that Ext4 is the default file system in this release.
