Part 2 of the Mandrake or Mandriva 2006 review



I’m still not used to the name Mandriva, Mandrake is just what I remember… anyway, mandrake.tips.4.free.fr has the second part of their mandriva 2006 review up. It sounds as though in the last week the iso’s of the free edition are now publicly available as well. This time around special attention is paid to hardware support, and multimedia capabilites focusing on image handling/editing software.


From what I’ve seen it all looks quite good, newest versions of several pieces of software that I’ve played around with before (hugin to stitch images together to make panoramic layouts), and software that I’ve come to rely on greatly (the gimp…)

Anyway, it looks like a good review all the way around.
