Exploring New Nepomuk Features in Mandriva Linux 2010

,----[ Quote ]
| You have probably heard of Nepomuk, the 
| semantic desktop technology we've been 
| shipping for a while as part of the KDE 
| Platform. However, so far, you may not 
| have noticed it really doing very much 
| useful for you. So what is this thing 
| called Nepomuk, what can it do for us now 
| and what will it bring us in the future? 
| We asked two of the driving forces behind 
| Nepomuk, StÃphane LauriÃre and Sebastian 
| TrÃg of Mandriva, to tell us about the 
| real Nepomuk features that are already 
| available in KDE software and those that 
| have been introduced with Mandriva Linux 
| 2010.

The Perfect Server - Mandriva 2010.0 Free (x86_64) [ISPConfig 2]

,----[ Quote ]
| This tutorial shows how to set up a 
| Mandriva 2010.0 Free (x86_64) server that 
| offers all services needed by ISPs and 
| hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable), 
| Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH and 
| TLS, BIND DNS server, Proftpd FTP server, 
| MySQL server, Dovecot POP3/IMAP, Quota, 
| Firewall, etc. In the end you should have 
| a system that works reliably, and if you 
| like you can install the free webhosting 
| control panel ISPConfig 2 (i.e., ISPConfig 
| runs on it out of the box). This tutorial 
| is written for the 64-bit version of 
| Mandriva 2010.0.


Mandriva: The Choice of a New(bie) Generation?

| The recommended download is called âOneâ, 
| a 32bit only Live CD available in many 
| languages with either the KDE or GNOME 
| desktop environment. This edition includes 
| closed source software such as proprietary 
| kernel drivers and Adobe Flash.
| Taking this version one step further is 
| the âPowerPackâ, which is not available 
| free of charge. This edition includes even 
| more proprietary software, as well as 
| providing commercial support. The website 
| lists the following software:
|     Flash
|     Fluendo DVD Reader
|     Fluendo Codecs
|     Acrobat Reader
|     Skype
|     Opera
|     Arkeia
|     VMWare



Back From The Wilderness With Mandriva One 2010

,----[ Quote ]
| So, as you can probably tell, I'm really
| impressed with Mandriva One 2010 â so much so
| that I'm not sure I can be bothered burning
| any of those other distro ISOs onto CDs just
| yet.


Mandriva 2010 - I mean ... Wow!

,----[ Quote ]
| Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere is a happy
| time. Lots of fresh Linux distribution
| releases coming out, all ready for plucking
| and testing. Mandriva 2010 is one of those.
| Debuting two weeks ago, it has drawn many,
| mainly positive reviews, sparking intrigue
| and a desire to take it for a spin. The
| previous version, Mandriva 2009 was a decent
| distro, with some small issues here and
| there; overall it behaved nicely and gave
| the average desktop user a solid, unique
| package. So the big question for me is, what
| does Mandriva 2010 bring to the table?
| [...]
| It does not have the openSUSE corporate-
| leaning class or the Ubuntu userbase, but
| for the desktop user like you and me, it's
| everything you could ask for. I'm genuinely
| pleased and surprised. Mandriva 2010 is a
| keeper.


Mandriva 2010 One Top Notch Version For Wireless Or Multimedia Use.

,----[ Quote ]
| Mandriva One Excellent Version for Wireless
| and Media Use For Linux Users.
| Whether multimedia, codecs assistance and
| wireless connection,
| it has become obvious to me that Mandriva
| 2010 is the best.
| Now I havenât used the latest Fedora or
| Open Suse. Most other
| Debian or Red Hat versions and distros open
| or otherwise I have used.
