Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "With the release of Microsoft's new Windows operating system (Vista), more and more people are looking for alternatives to Windows for various reasons. This tutorial is the second in a series of articles where I will show people who are willing to switch to Linux how they can set up a Linux desktop (Mandriva Free 2007 in this article) that fully replaces their Windows desktop, i.e. that has all software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge."

urpmi has improved quite a bit since 8.x.

The best thing is that you can now download a Live CD and try MDV 2007 without installing anything.

And you have options! {KDE or Gnome}-live CD, {with or without}-proprietary software (nvidia drivers, etc)

IMHO Mandriva 2007 is pretty darn good, and it has removed Windows from my PC. And pretty soon, 2007.1 will show up. Can't wait!

Peace!
