A look at Mandriva Linux 2008

| There were aspects of this Mandriva release that I really liked, such as the
| installer and the Control Center but overall the system didn't really grab
| me. It is quite a decent, well put-together operating system with all the
| basics and a few extras like the Control Center and 3D desktop effects. It
| was stable and ran well, but on the whole it didn't seem to offer anything
| exciting enough to make me want to switch to the distribution permanently.
| For the seasoned Mandriva user, I get the impression this will be quite a
| worthy upgrade, but as for me I'm going to check back when the next release
| arrives. * * * *

Battle of the Titans: Mandriva 2008 vs openSUSE 10.3

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall Winner
|
| In our little just-for-fun comparison, we the judges find that Mandriva wins
| by 4 categories to 2. But to the original question the answer would be to go
| buy the Mandriva Power Pack or try PCLOS or ALT Linux in which advanced power
| saving feature do work out of the box. Also, YMMV. *
|
| However, don't forget that both openSUSE and Mandriva are both nice distros.
| This little article is highly subjective and you may not agree. That's okay.
| I love them both. *

| Winner: Mandriva 2008.0

Mandriva 2008.0 rocks

| Mandriva 2008.0 seems to be a splendid release. Since setup I've not
| experienced any problems. My system is fast, responsive, and stable. The new
| artwork is gorgeous, and the fonts look great as well. I was pleased with the
| hardware support, especially the powersaving features. I can play any *
| multimedia file format I have, and watch Flash videos on the Web. *

Mandriva Linux PowerPack 2008.0 review

,----[ Quote ]
| Like I usually say when Mandriva is at the apex of its release cycle, this is
| desktop Linux as it should be. It's as advanced and complex as you need it to
| be, and as automatic as most people would like it to be. Unlike nearly every
| other desktop-oriented OS, with Mandriva I never run into incidents where the
| automatic parts of the system interfere with my intentions for desktop
| operation. * *
