Mandriva 2008 Spring

Wednesday, April 9, 2008

I just read the announcement that Mandriva released 2008 Spring (ver. 2008.1?). I was surprised to find a few interesting items in the list of things they've improved in this release. Notably they have now have parental controls, media server capabilities and better synchronization support with mobile devices built-in. Sadly Palm is not included in the list of devices that 2008 Spring provides "Easy support for synchronizing" for. Another noteworthy item is the out-of-the-box support for the Asus Eee PC. Mandriva touts that 2008 Spring "works perfectly on the Eee PC with no modifications" needed. I think I'll be busy during my offs trying out Mandriva and DreamLinux ^_^

By the way, you can check for screenshots of the beautifully designed desktops here: KDE, Gnome, Xfce. If your interested in trying out Mandriva 2008 Spring, you can download your free copy from here.
