Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall we liked what we saw. Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring may not be the best 
| distro for the newcomer moving over from Windows, but if you're used to the 
| way Linux works and want to try something different, give it a try.  


Lightweight laptops do a delicate balancing act

| Taiwanese upstart Asus made a name for itself last year with the itty-bitty 
| 2-pound, Linux-based $299 Eee PC, popular with techies but hamstrung in a few 
| ways. Asus recently unveiled a welcome newcomer, the Eee PC 900. While 
| keeping the petite form factor pretty much intact, the latest model ups the 
| size of the screen from 7 inches to 8.9 inches, boosting the resolution along 
| the way. Alas, the price is also considerably larger: $550, up from $299.     



Mandriva 2008.1 KDE hits a sweet spot

| It is amazing how well Mandriva performs on what is now considered limited 
| hardware. It may not be the most exciting distribution you can install, but 
| it runs as expected and performs the complex multimedia tasks I want it to 
| run in the manner to which I have become accustomed with earlier 
| distributions and releases. It has truly come a long way and is worthy of 
| first consideration as an alternative OS.

| Many people are talking about the Asus Eee PC : low cost, tiny, and for
| the "geeks", running Linux. Mandriva 2008 Spring is compatible out of the box
| with Asus Eee PC. However a new low cost PC is appearing, done by a spanish
| company : AIRIS KIRA. This notebbok is low cost ( 299 € ), and last but no
| least : is running Mandriva Linux !    


Feeling the heat at Microsoft

| If I ask you who is Microsoft's biggest competitor now, who would it be?
| Ballmer: Open...Linux. I don't want to say open source. Linux, certainly have
| to go with that.

| Mandriva says Linux 2008 Spring works out of the box on the Eee PC.
| Low-cost PCs from Asus, Everex, and other manufacturers are becoming
| increasingly popular as some computers user conclude that mainstream systems
| running the Windows or Macintosh operating systems are overpowered for their
| needs.
