Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Mandriva Linux 2007 RC1 has been released. This new release brings the Ia_Ora theme to KDE, and fixes some bugs concerning proprietary video drivers (especially nVIDIA), the b44 network driver, and much more. You can get it via the development (Cooker) mirror trees on ftp and http, and via the preferred method: .iso images (available through the same mirrors as the Cooker ones). There is a changelog too.

Well, we do care about it, but there is nothing negative to talk about, so what shall I write here except: It is very stable, almost bug-free by now and lightning fast (Boot time under 30 seconds on my machine!), while looking fresh and being bleeding edge (KDE 2.5, Gnome 2.16, Gimp 2.3,...).

Yes, PCLinuxOS is nice, but without Mandriva, it wouldn't exist, as already pointed out, it is based on Mandriva. ;) And Mandriva is available for free, just to mind you. Since many, many years! Please don't spread false information. Instead, grab a copy of it and test it yourself. It is amazing. ;)

adamw, you did a really great job this time. It is - without any doubts - the best distro Mandriva has ever released. Two thumbs up from my side.

I guess that Mandriva will again be the distro to beat, once 2007 is officially released.

One final note: Other distros also lost their founders or fired them. Who cares? This is a job and in jobs there is fluctuation, wether you like it or not.
