Mandriva 2006 review



Madpengiun now has a review up of Mandriva 2006. I’m still hoping soon to have time to sit down and upgrade on at least the laptop. The biggest problem the reviewer had was (slow?) performance under KDE which he suspected could be hardware specific. Overall it sounds like things are VERY well done, it looks like a nice interactive firewall, a la zonealarm is in there which the reviewer was pleased with.


The only thing I don’t like about KDE is it’s tendency to be progressively more “eye-candy-ish” each release. Fortunately it’s infinitely customizable, but at some point I wonder how that starts to affect ease of use. I don’t know that’s what was going on for the reviewer, but will likely find out in the next couple days…
