Mandriva 2007 Beta 2 – short review

Filed under: Reviews — rakeshvk @ 5:07 am

Mandriva Linux (formerly Mandrakelinux or Mandrake Linux, and an acquisition of Conectiva and Lycoris) is a Linux distribution created by Mandriva (formerly Mandrakesoft). The first release was based on Red Hat Linux (version 5.1) and KDE (version 1.0) in July 1998. It has since diverged from Red Hat and has included a number of original tools mostly to ease system configuration. Mandriva Linux (at those times named Mandrake Linux) was originated by Gaël Duval, who was also a co-founder of Mandrakesoft.

This short review covers the key changes introduced in beta 2 – the Live-CD version with GNOME desktop onboard. Some screenshots are attached as well )
