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.

Please read the changelog/release note. I love the anti-aliasing. Don't believe me?

OK, the icons are not stock. A quick trip to kde-look.org and found realistik icons.

One last wish ;) the artwork for background splash image is not very professional. If you look carefully, the Mandriva icon, the wand magic at the bottom right does not look as good as the background desktop's.

I normally don't get into distro war but you said bunch of things without even trying or show any issues that you have with latest Mandriva.

The way it loooks is to each his/her own state. I could go on and say the same thing with other distros look like crap. I was talking about the anti-aliasing look. Try to install latest Kubuntu/Ubuntu and compare how it looks with Mandriva

Also, if you run MySQL performance on dual-core on all distros out there, tell me which one give you highest read/write transactions per second. Then come back here and talk trash about other people work.
