Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Mandriva has announced the launch of the final version of Mandriva Linux 2009 Spring (codename Pauillac). This new version comes with a host of improvements and changes, as always. Fun fact: this is the first release reported to us by Anne Nicolas instead of Adam Williamson. For those that keep score.

I would stick with the One edition if you just want to try things out. There is no 64bit 'One' so if you want that you need to install 'Free'. I'm running 2009.0 Free 64bit and I like it. Don't let the 'free' scare you, simply install the proprietary goodies you need from the PLF. Keep in mind that 'Free' is install only, no liveCD.

I only wish the system was more responsive. The package manager is unbearably slow, like openSuSE slow. Other bits seem sluggish too but a good overall system.
