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.

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?

That wouldn't work, no. At least last time I checked, the GTK+ patch for a top menubar was an ugly hack. It won't play nice with KDE's top menubar (unless you patch that with another ugly hack).

Recently, the OS X GTK+ port introduced integration with Mac's top menubar. If someone tried to implement something like that to integrate GTK+ apps better on KDE/X11 and GNUstep/X11, it would probably be merged on GTK+'s official tree.

Hmm.. sounds like something to do at freedesktop.org - an open standard for unified menubars and/or detachable menues (for GNUstep)?

Aahh yes. The unified menubar for GTK+/Gnome is in part an applet for gnome-panel (just checking up). That won't work (unless you somehow swallow the applet inside kicker or sumthen like that - sounds like BIG_UGLY_HACK_SO_BREAK_ME_PLEASE).
