Mandriva One 2009:

| I love the look of Mandriva (GNOME). The colors are attractive, the packaged
| background is pretty, the icons look great, and after changing the window
| borders back to good ol' Clearlooks, everything was just as I like it. Hell,
| flash support was even already available in Firefox. I haven't tried to see
| if the system already supports DVD playback and such yet, but I expect it
| will. It's nice to have a distro where these things are already supported,
| since that saves a bit of time after install.

| One of the more exciting inclusions in Mandriva 2009 is the incorporation of
| the LUKS encryption system into the installer. What this means is that
| Mandriva 2009 will allow users to encrypt their partitions directly from the
| installer.


Living with Mandriva

| That’s pretty much all I’ve done. So far, nothing has crashed, Plasma has
| behaved itself and everything has “just worked”. Mandriva has made me forget
| that I’m using KDE 4, which is actually a good thing!
