Mandriva 2009.0 Is Almost Here!

The newest version of Mandriva is almost here! Released just a few days ago, the second release candidate of Mandriva includes the long awaited switch to KDE4. A release candidate, for those not aware, is the versions of Mandriva (and other software) that are considered nearest to the final cut. Once these final few versions pass with a minimum of bug reports, the software is released in full.

If you’re interested in trying out Mandriva Linux, you should try last season’s stable 2008.1 version. If you’re a current Mandriva user and want to see the latest and greatest (at the risk of system stability), check out 2009.0 RC2.

  1. Since this post, the final version of Mandriva 2009.0 has come out. I have really fallen in love with KDE4. 4.1 is almost as good as 3.5. I am excited about the upcoming release of 4.2 as I feel it adds a lot of the features I’ve missed and fixes a ton of bugs. See you in 2009!
