    While the Mandriva Linux distribution lost most of its charm when many of the developers left to form Mageia Linux and the remaining stakeholders switched to just doing one official release per year, the 2011 final release was published on Sunday...

    this release is pretty interesting.

    i see they now use systemd

    and are making yearly releases instead of twice a year which is best for normal desktop users.


    and the new interface is cool, kinda like dash

    Hopefully they try to push as much of the developement upstream as possible. To me however the default app choises and themes seem horrible and using GTK+ theme for Qt doesn't sound that good either. One distro more to use systemd, awesome.
