Mandriva Linux is an operating system for your computer. Easy to try. Easy to install. Easy to use.

Mandriva Linux offers new functionalities which will revolutionise the desktop. These include 'Smart Desktop', an original technology which offers dynamic acces to all your files by labelling your photos, documents, mails or videos and managing your personal data in a completely customised approach.

Next generation user experience

Mandriva has decided to focus his efforts on one user environment (KDE). We put all our efforts in having many improvements (all open source) on the usual linux desktop experience.

It is directly visible with a new graphical design, a new main program start menu (SimpleWelcome), an improved taskbar (RocketBar) that includes fast directory access applets (StackFolder).

An effort of graphical integration of all types of applications (gnome and kde) has been done. There are no graphical differences between Gnome and KDE applications.

A better, simpler environment

A new graphical theme has been created for the desktop including a full range of icons.

The login manager (KDM) was also improved, with bigger icons, it allows to perfectly see faces photo when logging in.

The file manager Dolphin is even more simplified without menu bar.

With this same goal of ergonomy, the full feature and lightweight music player Clementine as well as the photo manager Shotwell were adopted.

Pitivi video editor has been updated to version 0.14.2 it includes many new video effects and an improved ergonomy.

Mandriva Smart Desktop

Mandriva continues to improve its Mandriva Smart Desktop. Nepomuk, the component that manages informations on informations, has received a faster backend engine (Virtuoso).

TimeFrame is a SimpleWelcome panel. It shows the files (document, videos, photos) used by the different applications on a time line. It becomes possible to find a file by just knowing when it was saved. TimeFrame is based on Nepomuk.

The desktop environment integrates the notion of Activity. An activity is a group of application and a configuration of the desktop (specific desktop icons, background image, ...).

LibreOffice makes every day more open.

Mandriva Linux 2011 includes LibreOffice full office software suite. It benefits of years of efforts and a vibrant, active supporting community.

LibreOffice is perfectly integrated into the desktop environment (style, file dialog, font rendering). It also includes more features and optimisation.

For example, LibreOffice Calc is faster and pivot tables were heavily worked on. More options, more speed, a clearer interface, with an easier loading of documents coming from other software.

A new html export assistant was also added for LibreOffice Impress helping preparing a presentation for a web output.

Many other features were added to LibreOffice
