20 Features in Mandriva 2010

  1. i think it harsh. did u look deeply into develompment? i can’t hardly accept u said that it is only focusing on theme & wallpaper. please take a look to the core, don’t get fooled by it’s cover. indeed, Ubuntu has the nicer look than any other, isn’t it? so respect that.
    i’m not Ubuntu fans or neither a user of it. But i can see from many user experience who have tried it’s beta version. They said it’s rock. Give it a try, hope you’ll see the diff between 9.04 and 9.10
