Nueva versión estable de Mandriva, aún no la he probado, pero como voy a formatear el portátil para deshacerme de Vista (cada día me gusta menos), creo que voy a probarlo, si ya me encantó la detección de hardware de la anterior versión... espero que esta sea mucho mejor.

Entre las mejoras tenemos KDE 4.03 (opcional, por defecto KDE 3.5.9, el KDE 4 lo instalaremos desde los repositorios, aún no esta libre de errores por lo que el Mandriva Team no ha tenido a bien implantarlo directamente en la LiveCD), también tenemos la opción (durante la instalación) de migrar los documentos de Windows a Mandriva, compartirlos con otros SO o dejarlos tal cual, para una completa lista de mejoras/novedades pasaros por aquí:
