Mandriva Linux 2007 Officially Released

Last week we announced Mandriva's brand new distribution, and now Mandriva Linux 2007 is finally available to the public.

The key innovation of Mandriva Linux 2007 is the spectacular AIGLX and Xgl 3D-accelerated desktop. Mandriva is the only distribution to provide both technologies and is particularly happy to have achieved this major breakthrough in desktop appearance. In addition, a new theme named Ia Ora ("hello" in French Polynesian) has been introduced.

Mandriva developed Invictus Firewall - this feature is available in Powerpack+ 2007 - a high-availability redundant firewall cluster system. To match everyone's needs, Mandriva Linux 2007 includes the latest innovations in the fields of office suite applications, Internet, multimedia and the new virtualization and 3D-accelerated desktop technologies.
