This is shaping up to be an excellent release.

KDE 4.2.2 finally begins to really show stability and the huge potential of KDE has now materialized. For me, there is simple no other desktop, free or proprietary, that matches its elegance and flexibility.

Mandriva really should deserve a lot more credit for bringing about the linux desktop revolution. Not only have the been pioneers of key components of the linux desktop, but they continue to put in excellent work. I encourage anyone who wants to see how great a free OS can be to try this release once the final version is out.

Only try this RC if you can live with some bugs.

Later.
