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.

Mandriva is still at the top, now the themes

Mandrive is still at the top: even compared with Suse, Kubuntu, you can make everything work easily.

However, I have seen it since 9.0: the graphics are chosen for uglyness and they never include all the standard KDE graphics, which are quite OK.


Moreover, they lost the topspot because of their new release cycle: people click on distributions only when they are constantly in the news. They should definitely go back to 6 months: too much happens in KDE-world in 1 year.
