Mandriva XFCE 2010 Spring is a big disappoinment

Filed under
Software
MDV

Mandriva XFCE is a lightweight distro but I don't think so because it failed to install in my PC that supports KDE 4.5, Windows 7 and Vista. then How can I say it as light weight.But it installed successfully on my friend PC who has high end Configuration.

Installation Experience:

It didn't install on my PC but install smoothly on my friends PC. Before Installtion we tested this Live CD it fails to detect GSM Modem, so internet using Samsung star 3G, Samsung c5130 and Samsung 5230 shark wasn't possible for us while Linux Mint XFCE is Detected our GSM based mobile device.

Multimedia Experience:

MP3 and common Video files run out of box, but to paly more codecs you have to buy it that is free in MINT.

The interesting fact is that this RC appears to be stable enough to be used for production work.
