Mandriva Linux 2008: A quick rundown August 27, 2007

Posted by rjdohnert in Uncategorized.

This is just a quick rundown.  Im not going to do a full blown review since its still a very beta release and since its not feature complete.  Mandriva Linux 2008 codenamed Galilee is a very interesting release.  It finally fixes the hang issue I had with Mandriva Linux 2007 on my Dell PowerEdge 500SC.  A lot of speed improvements even on older hardware and to me, PowerEdge fix or not brings Mandriva back on the map.  For the next release the Mandriva One, solo CD installer is coming back.  The plan is to bring an XFCE based Mandriva One image into the works as well.  From my tests with the three CD set, Mandriva 2008 is definately a contender.  When it is released I will do a full blown review at the time.  For right now, an interesting plaything.  Look at the Whats coming section of the wiki for a great overview of what will be coming.  As well as have a gander at some of the Tech specs page.
