Mandriva One 2010 Spring KDE

Filed under
MDV

When I optimistically downloaded the 690MB ISO file from Mandriva’s website, I had high hopes that this version would improve the steadily degrading once immensely popular GNU/Linux distribution.

When I went Linux for good, my first distro was Mandriva 2008.1 Spring Free. It was a brilliant distro, and given the choice I would run it even today.

2009.0 was good, but nothing to write home about, as was 2009.1. Cut to 2010.0 and Mandriva began to take the shape of my worst nightmares.

2010.1 does nothing to improve on it.




Trash

What the hell is wrong with people? I guess you aren't cool unless you are trashing a distribution in your reviews these days.

The AMD Radeon R9 Fury Is Currently A Disaster On Linux

When AMD announced the Radeon R9 Fury line-up powered by the "Fiji" GPU with High Bandwidth Memory, I was genuinely very excited to get my hands on this graphics card. The tech sounded great and offered up a lot of potential, and once finally finding an R9 Fury in stock, shelled out nearly $600 for this graphics card. Unfortunately though, thanks to the current state of the Catalyst Linux driver, the R9 Fury on Linux is a gigantic waste for OpenGL workloads. The R9 Fury results only exemplifies the hideous state of AMD's OpenGL support for their Catalyst Linux driver with a NVIDIA graphics card costing $200 less consistently delivering better gaming performance.
