    […] Mandriva has long been my favourite Linux distribution for installation on computers of people who are new to Linux. One important reason for this is that it has the most complete translation into Slovenian language. With the recent releases of other distributions, especially Kubuntu 6.06 and SUSE Linux 10.1, Mandriva got a very serious and up to date competition. In order to not fall behind Mandriva team is working hard on their next release, Mandriva Linux 2007. They have just released the first beta, which is codenamed Thor. There are four different kind of CDs available: with KDE or GNOME desktop and each of them is available for i586 and x86_64 (AMD64) computers. There is also a completely new option: a DVD which has both desktops and is available for both processor architectures at the same time. Versions of some software: Linux Kernel 2.6.17, KDE 3.5.3 and GNOME 2.16 beta 1. Some more information about the release is available on Cooker Wiki. To download Mandriva Linux 2007 Beta 1 see this list of mirrors. […]
