[News] Great Review of Mandriva Spring Release (2008.1)

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.

| Anyway, I downloaded Mandriva because I'm tired of Vista. Vista does not
| allow you do easily do high-level, complex things like text editing or web
| browsing. It doesn't seem to understand the "Shut Down" or the "Sleep"
| commands. It does, however, look all kinds of pretty, and it does run
| Microsoft Office, which I don't think Mandriva does. But I use
| OpenOffice.org. Dang.

| 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 !

| 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.
