Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris The boys and girls in the Mandriva team have released Mandriva Linux 2010.0. This new Mandriva release obviously brings the latest and greatest from the open source and Linux communities, including the latest KDE and GNOME releases. Among other things, boot time has been a priority.

I have been using SuSe in the past (I think it was 5.6 or something) until I discovered Mandriva (called Mandrake around that time). I was impressed by the smooth integration of Gnome and KDE applications. I did not matter if you where using Gnome or KDE - everything was at your fingertips.

This is still the case today. I think Gnome and KDE get REAL equal treatment in this distro (and there are a bunch of installable other desktop environments too). I must admit however I am a big KDE fan, and really like the way KDE 4 is developing.

I must agree with the people saying Mandriva has one of the smoothest KDE 4 implementations. If you take a look at Kubuntu you can see how things can go terribly wrong. If Ubuntu/Kubuntu would be integrated smoothly they would be able to compete a bit with Mandriva, but at this time Mandriva 2010 is absolutely the winner.

It is really a shame this distro gets so little attention, but I guess that's the way things go.
