Besides the usual stuff that is in every other distro, this looks interesting:
"Nepomuk integration: Nepomuk technology has been further integrated. You will be able to organize your desktop depending on your projects, annotate documents, ... Complete information"
The whole "semantic desktop" thing with KDE has been coming for a while, but it's still not visible to users. The interesting thing now is whether this is something that users of Gnome and other distros can access as well, and whether we are finally seeing it becoming ready for prime time.
Redesigning all application to use it in an effective and useful way will take a lot more time. Amarok and Digikam have a Nepomuk backend (disabled by default), but as they are alone to use their own data, it provide no benefits. If Plasma could integrate everything well (Media Center layer and project based plasmoids as launchers), then it might gain speed, but those are nowhere to be found (well, they kind of exist, but are not yet very good).
I'm very happy.
I want to hug all the developers that stayed and made this happen. Thank you very much guys and girls.
Mandriva have been a pioneer on desktop linux for many years and deserves our support. They have always delivered a free desktop available to everyone.
If you have decision making power in your company, give them a try or if you are a home user, think about buying some of the stuff at the store, a shirt, a power-pack. We need as many companies in the Linux ecosystem around as possible.
Historically speaking, Mandriva, along with Debian, were among the first to deliver a free distro that anyone could download. They were particularly important in advancing the case of linux on the desktop.
Back in the day, Suse wasn´t completely redistributable as Yast was under a non-free license. Then, there was Libranet and Lindows and Caldera and Turbolinux, none of which were entirely free software.
Today, Mandriva not only remains true to its roots, but also delivers an outstanding product. I think, right now, Mandriva´s KDE desktop is really the best one around.
