Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Earlier this week, Mandriva released Mandriva Linux 2008.0, the latest version of their flagship Linux distribution. Mandriva was so kind as to provide me with a copy of Mandriva Linux 2008.0 PowerPack, the commercial version. Back when it was named Mandrake, it was my first ever Linux distribution (I bought a Linux magazine), so I have always had a special place for Mandriva. Read on for a review.

Just a word to say I enjoyed the review. I did the opposite of the OS, as I installed the Free version, with only Gnome & Gtk apps. All good, but it was on a desktop, so I can't comment about any wireless problems...
I think Mandriva is climbing back in the distro charts, and this release is better than its Suse counterpart.

One strange thing : I can't manage to have my "Gmail notifier" connecting on Firefox in Mandriva, while it works perfectly well in Fedora, Debian and others... Strange...
