Mandriva 2006.1-0.3 Maybe better than 2006!

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.
