Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "In less than two weeks time, six months after the great Mandriva 2007.1 Spring release, Mandriva 2008.0 will be ready and published. Currently, Release Candidate 2 is out, it's your last chance to test it and make sure everything is working before the final release! There were great ideas at the start of the development phase, and in in those six months that have passed, Mandriva has always been one of the most active projects on This gives much hope for lots of improvements, so let's take a look at what can be expected from Mandriva 2008.0."

I plan on dual-booting my regular work-horse (Fedora) with the soon to come Mandriva 2008, as it seems to have a new feel... Something good about it... Hey, it's French, it can't be that bad !

I am a "die-hard" Gnome user, but was caressing the idea to go KDE... But it doesn't seem to be the right time, as the switch between v.3.5.x and v.4 might not be painless... Gnome 2.20 seems like the stable and reasonable choice... I shall try to remain Gnome only, with GnomeBaker and Rythmbox...

I'll do the same on my future install of F8 when it comes out, so I'll have a good ground to compare their respective feeling on the same PC...
