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 to mention:
I was trying up to now a x64 distro with an e6400 intel...
Ubuntu fail with a lot os issues, some others too etc..
The only one working right out of the box is this one! Mandriva !
Probably (I am not certain) it's because it is not a full 64 bit distro but it's at my opinion a very good move from Madriv's people, ti mix both environments.
I can now on my desktop use some 32 or 64 bit logs without having the question; will it run ?...
Just for this it worth to try Mandriva and give it a chance...
