[News] Mandriva Linux Community Newsletter; Ubuntu Community Council Revved Up

Hash: SHA1

Mandriva Linux Community Newsletter #128

,----[ Quote ]
| It has been, to your editor's shame, many months since the last issue of this 
| newsletter, and far too much has happened at Mandriva in the mean time to 
| cover it all in detail. This issue will take a broad overview of the most 
| significant events of the last eight months. Following issues will 
| (hopefully!) go back to being released more regularly, and covering events in 
| the usual level of detail.      


More efficient membership approval process

,----[ Quote ]
| The Community Council has recently implemented some changes to community 
| governance processes which it believes reflect a significant improvement in 
| one area of community governance: applications for Ubuntu membership.

| You know what Mandriva is; you know what XFCE is; you know what a community
| means; now it's time to acknowledge some good results


Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring Xfce edition released

,----[ Quote ]
| Thanks to the efforts of the Mandriva Linux Xfce development community, an
| Xfce version of Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring One is now available. Just like
| the KDE and GNOME versions of One, this is an installable live CD edition of
| Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring, but this time featuring Xfce as the desktop
| environment.    


Mandriva Linux 2008.1 - The Blooming Spring.

,----[ Quote ]
| Mandriva Linux is a predominantly KDE-centric Linux distribution originating
| from France. This desktop-oriented Linux distribution which began its
| production in 1998 owes its popularity to its ease of installation and
| graphical productive draktools. I decided to review Mandriva 2008 Spring (aka
| Mandriva Linux 2008.1) when I got to know that, this new Spring edition has a
| full support for the Asus Eee PC and also improved support for mobile device
| synchronization.      
| [...]
| In conclusion, there is no doubt that Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring is a great
| release. Great artwork! The hardware support for this release has been
| excellent with exception of the support for the two my USB-based TV tuners. I
| hope that Acer notebook users will be very happy with this release as
| Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring also comes with third-party acer_acpi and wmi-acer
| modules. With a very active forum and vast amount of documentation available,
| help is abundant for the users. One of the things which really made a good
| impression on me is the mouse pointer integration support by Mandriva 2008
| Spring, when it is run as a guest operating system on the Virtualbox 1.5.6  
| OSE. With such a support, all of the mouse's actions will be directly sent to
| the guest operating system when I hover the mouse over the virtual machine's
| display. Delaying the Mandriva Online applet from checking for updates by a
| few minutes is also a very good move.          

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
