[News] Mandriva Linux 2009.1 Makes KDE4 a Champion

Hash: SHA1

Mandriva 2009.1 “Spring” is Stunning

,----[ Quote ]
| So there you have it, Mandriva 2009.1 is an amazing release. It has 
| everything that Kubuntu lacks in a KDE distro. Kubuntu has always been my  
| favorite distribution, yet a release as good as this one may convince me to 
| make the switch. To put it more simply, Mandriva 2009.1 is probably the best 
| KDE-based distribution I have seen so far this year, and it’s everything that 
| Kubuntu should have been. I definitely recommend anyone reading this to give
Mandriva a shot. Hopefully you’ll find it as wonderful as I do.

Mandriva Linux: What Windows should be.

,----[ Quote ]
| For the last 15 or more years I have been waiting for Linux to be as user
| friendly as Windows. As more and more impressive software came out for
| windows, this grew stronger and stronger. Now, I am finally satisfied. I
| installed and instantly saw that my life was about to get easier. I spend
| about 16 hours a day coding and Googling. So, my operating system must be top
| notch. I also do not like to sit and type commands all day either. But with
| Mandriva 2009, I do not have to!
| It happens everytime my girlfriend goes to MySpace. She gets infected with
| malware, despite running Spybot SD and AVG. Great job, now I am going to have
| to clean her PC out again right? Wrong, I formatted the drive and installed
| Mandriva. She is now browsing safely and is having no problem using Linux. It
| is as easy as Windows now, but without the bullshit. Now, I do not complain
| that she is going to MySpace!
