Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Earlier this week, Mandriva released Mandriva Linux 2008.0, the latest version of their flagship Linux distribution. Mandriva was so kind as to provide me with a copy of Mandriva Linux 2008.0 PowerPack, the commercial version. Back when it was named Mandrake, it was my first ever Linux distribution (I bought a Linux magazine), so I have always had a special place for Mandriva. Read on for a review.

Thom,
Thanks for taking the time to review Mandriva 2008.0.
Been some time since I saw a review of Mandriva on this website ;)
I am an avid user of Mandriva and find it the best when it comes to combining an easy-to-use desktop with options for experts.
I believe the draktools especially the partitioner to be one of the best.
I think there still is a big role Mandriva can play in the desktop space.
Regards
Gireesh
