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:
osrevolution.com: Mandriva 2009.1 is overall an excellent transition from Windows to Linux, and comes with many great features for the tech-savvy user who wants an improved, sleek desktop look and feel as well as an abundance of programs to use.
mandriva.com: Mandriva, Europe's leading Linux editor, today announced the launch of Mandriva Flash 2009 Spring which takes the highly popular family of Mandriva Flash yet another step further.
h-online.com: The Mandriva developers have released a second edition of their Mandriva Linux One (MLO) 2009.1 LiveCD. It includes all of the available security and maintenance updates up to the 10th of July
desktoplinuxreviews.com: Mandriva Linux Free is the version without any proprietary software or drivers. It’s for those who are truly committed to “free” software at its most…well…free.
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.
