Mandriva Linux 2006 Beta 2 review



Wow, some people are quick. What has it been a day? There is already a review up of the second Beta in the release cycle of Mandrake…. uhmmm Mandriva Linux 2006. (Still can’t quite get used to the name change.) Anyway… The review is complete with screenshots and a link to the complete package list.



The reviewer had a 15 minute install (from hard drive). Is impressed by the quick book of Mandriva. (30 seconds or less). There is a new KAT search tool. The biggest change here though is the new theme which apparently runs throughout the installer, boot splash and any desktop environments. Frankly it looks very nice. The reviewer was impressed with the theme as well.
