thelinuxexperiment.com: After a couple of weeks of research I have finally narrowed down my choice to either Fedora 11 or Mandriva 2009.1 to use during the course of this experiment. The two distros are both very mature and feature rich which makes this choice extraordinarily difficult.
artipc10.vub.ac.be: There were a lots of package updates in Mandriva Cooker during the last two weeks, amongst others because of rebuilds of all Perl packages. Currently a complete rebuild of all packages in the Main repository is going on. Here’s a list of some more interesting changes:

alecs1.wordpress: I would suggest Mandriva to try to move all its technology to Debian-like packaging and make the system 99.9% percent compatible with Debian.
linuxforu.com: The war has begun. Quite literally. We laid our hands on the RC (release candidate) available for free on Microsoft’s website, and took it for a spin against Mandriva 2009.1 Spring. Who won? The results are most surprising!
blog.mandriva.com: Mandriva Linux 2010 Alpha 1 is now available on public mirrors. This first alpha is available only through Free version DVDs. This first release comes also with specifications document available.
celettu.wordpress: When it comes to the big distros I tend to stick to the ones that are based on Debian. Apt just is simpler and faster to me than rpm. But since I reviewed Fedora 11 (or tried to, in any case), I thought I’d have a go at the other big two RPM distributions: OpenSuse and Mandriva.
distroviews.wordpress: I popped the old disk in the drive and waited for the skinned bootloader to load up. Well I say that like it took a while, but it really didn’t. I selected the option to boot into Mandriva Live.

linuxbox.co.nz: I’ve been doing some thinking about what would make Mandriva stand out and also what could help Linux distributions in general. I am thinking screenshots.
openbytes.wordpress: Whilst Ubuntu is a great distro offering “out of the box” support, there is so much more to Linux and Linux != Ubuntu!
techenclave.com: Ever since the launch of Ubuntu One there has been a lot of speculation about it.. Seeing all the response from audience Mandriva SA came with shrewd alternative and hit the nail at the right time.. Mandriva Click'n'Backup has quite a few advantages over Ubuntu One..
polishlinux.org: I decided to have a look the newest addition to Mandriva family; Madriva One 2009.1 Spring, boldly promising to bring the best of the latest cutting edge technology to your desktop. As promises go this is a big one, and after reading the release note on the Madriva website I wondered if this once probably the most popular distro is ready regain the leaser position.
