NethServer Linux - Distro of the Month for August 9, 2016

#1

Ok, if you want to mess with NethServer, then go here http://www.nethserver.org/demo-running-on-docker/ and you can log into their live demo site hosted on Docker. I guess I was half asleep when I suggested this. It’s a server install with a web-based frontend (which while cool, is not useful to everyone).

So, instead I’m switching it up to OpenMandriva https://www.openmandriva.org/ This is a desktop distro, and we should be able to get alot more out of it for the general Linux user.

As always, let’s evaluate it for the following:

  • Install
  • Initial Setup
  • Out of the Box Usability
  • Default Applications
  • Look and Feel
  • Navigation
  • Drivers / Driver Issues?
  • Performance
  • Stability
  • Does it fit your workflow?
  • Would you use this as your main OS?
  • Would you give this to your Mom, Dad Spouse, Child?
  • Would you give this to your friend?
  • Would you give this to your worst enemy?
