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
