Mandriva 2007 download now available



Several days ago there were announcements of the release of Mandriva 2007, only thing was, the download wasn’t available yet. Well, today the download appears available. I haven’t looked to see what differences there are between the free and the powerpack download (powerpack can be downloaded by club members as well.)


Aមុmong the things listed *(I suspect powerpack….)

* Watch all your favorite movies legally on LinDVD;
* Play video games with TransGaming’s Cedega;
* Discover FlatOut, the famous car racing game;
* Enjoy 6 months of anti-virus protection with with Kaspersky;
* Benefit from the powerful BitDefender;
* Run and manage any virtual machine with VMware Player, an integrated system virtualization solution.

Of course, vmware player is freely downloadable from vmware anyway. I do like to see that linDVD is included (at least I assume this is for powerpack and likely not the free download.) It’s very encouraging to see “value” added in return for someone putting out some money towards the distribution. Yes, I know it’s technically possible to watch DVD’s without linDVD, but there are a number of legal issues concerning it and IF there is a very cheap and legal option – good. I know, BUT WE PAID FOR THE DVD’s….

It sounds like the graphical package manager has seen a rewrite as well. I’m interested to see what it looks like. I don’t know that I’m ready to replace my Mandriva 2006 desktop yet. I’ve really been thinking about going with Ubuntu as the “next generation” of my desktop. But… I’ll definitely be installing this into a virtual machine to look at.
