[News] Mandriva Linux Leapfrogs Windows, New PCLinuxOS Release

Hash: SHA1

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!

| ON BEHALF OF TEXSTAR, The Ripper Gang is pleased to announce the third public 
| beta ISO release of what will ultimately become PCLinuxOS 2009. Due to some 
| very personal issues, Texstar has taken a temporary leave of absence, but not  
| to worry folks, he'll be back very soon.

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.


Mandriva Linux 2009 impresses

| 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!
