Per Øyvind Karlsen announced a few days ago the immediate availability for download and testing of the Tech Preview (TP) release of the upcoming Mandriva 2012 Linux operating system.
Wasn’t Mandriva supposed to be dead?! I really don’t know anymore, but it looks like Mandriva team is still developing the distribution.
Mandriva 2012 Tech Preview comes with Linux kernel 3.4.1 and includes KDE SC 4.8.4, GNOME Shell 3.4.1, Xfce 4.10, and LXDE 0.5 desktop environments, as well as the LibreOffice 3.5.2 and Firefox 12.0 apps.
Dubbed Bernie Lomax, Mandriva 2012 Tech Preview is distributed as DVD ISO images for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.
