    Thumbs down Mandriva 2009.0 is out

    out since a few days and unfortunately it is still full of bugs
    It keeps failing, pakage actualisation is erratic, ktorrent uses 100% of CPU, some gets graphical problems under some nvidia GPU, installation is unreliable (done two similar with different results, sound is not too good for me (intel_HDA) had to play a bit in various areas of kde pulse....And all this with a clean install (don't event think of an upgrade from older version)
    good sides: the parts that work are fast!.
    I'd advise no to upgrade to this one at the moment but rather wait a few weeks to have the bugs seems to me that I've been forced to be a beta tester and I don't like it much!
    the errata page is BIG and there are much more than what is written...
    so, for this one, so far : my verdict is so far not too good!!!

    SOunds like it's still in the alpha phase of development. When is the gold / final version expected to be released? Fedora 10 gold is coming out this month.

    it is the what you call gold
    it passed through the betas and the RCs...and arrives there crappy just to respect a planning of 2 releases a year with a release date planned last year !
