Mandriva Screenshots

My first impressions of the new Mandriva release are positive. I've poked and prodded around a little and find this release to be stable and fast. I'm disappointed that kde is still a 3.3 version, but it's stable and looks fairly nice. I understand there are backports from 3.4 present, but it must be underlying code as the nice new eye candy and options are not present.

The gui software installer works great as does most of the Mandrakelinux Control Center. They went through some bumps during the beta cycle, but it's nice to see the end result turned out well.

If you wish to see some screenshots, I have posted some in my gallery.

I hope a full review to be forthcoming in the next day or so. I look forward to digging deeper into Mandriva 2005.

Happy Mandriva'in folks.
