Mandriva 2006.1-0.3 Maybe better than 2006!

Filed under
MDV
Reviews

I was impressed with Mandriva 2005. It was a clean, easy to use distro with about everything the newbie or power user needed in software.

Version 2006 was released and I reversed my thoughts. Seemed like there were too many things that were let downs following 2005. While I had nothing to do with it, there has been a quiet rumor circulating that Mandriva would release an updated version of 2006. It would contain more CUTTING EDGE software and would take care of some of the bugs that were contained in 2006.

MANDRIVA 2006.1-0.3 Beta is here. The new snapshot is available in your choice of 3 700MB isos for either the i586 or x86-64 or one i586 Live CD. Here's what we found.

In all, MANDRIVA 2006.1-0.3 is worth giving a spin. For the newbie, you will enjoy the simplicity of install and installing additional programs. For the power user, you already know the distribution.

CentOS 5.11 Officially Released, Probably the Last One in the Series

As you all know already, CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from sources provided by Red Hat. This is the eleventh update for the distribution and probably the last one. It features all the packages from all variants, including Server and Client, and the upstream repositories have been merged into a single one. Red Hat announced less than a month ago the release of their last update for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, 5.11. It stands to reason that CentOS 5.11 will also be the last update in the series.

Opera for Linux to Get a Stable Version Soon

The Opera browser is now based on Chromium and this simple fact has delayed the release of a stable Linux version for more than a year. Now, the Linux platform will finally get a release and some final touches have been made to the client. The developers have improved a number of features that are already available in the browser. For example, users will not be able to drop a PDF file in browser tab that already has a similar file opened, deleting the entries in History now works as it should, the correct font is used all the time, and the new Bookmark feature that has been recently made available has been improved.
