Today I took a look at the Alpha 1 release of OpenMandriva Lx 4.1. OpenMandriva was forked from Mandriva Linux. It ships with a suite of useful applications and the Plasma Desktop. You can watch me take this distribution for a spin in the video below;
In this video I set up my desktop and install some new themes to get it looking how I want it to. Some themes didn’t work so well with OpenMandriva while others worked absolutely fine. I install some additional packages then just have a look around the system and see how everything performs. Overall the distribution felt polished and cohesive and i’ll look forward to testing out the final version once it gets released.
