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.

Blending QT and GTK+

Well, I for one think it is a great idea to blend QT and GTK+ applications. With one (but very important) caveat: The developers must make sure that QT and GTK+ applications are as consistent as possible. This is easier with QT4 and GTK+2 than QT3 and GTK+2.

And considering the unified menubar in KDE in Mandriva they probably should've used the unofficial GTK+ patch (which btw. works fine for most apps). But I'm afraid hell freezes over before the GTK+-devs will incorporate an option for unified menubars.

We don't use the unified menubar by default. Thom chose to use it on his own.

The Mandriva default theme, Ia Ora, is implemented for both GTK+ and Qt, so applications in the two toolkits look very consistent by default.

Hmm... could you offer an alternative GTK+-build incorporating the unofficial patches for GTK+ in case somebody wants a unified menubar in KDE? Or would that require two sets of all GTK+-applications?

Not demanding anything, merely curious (or how it is spelled) ;)

EDIT: Oh btw. Does the unified menubar in KDE by any chance work with the unified menubar in Etoilé? :p
