We hope you will enjoy this release of OpenMandriva Lx, its range of cutting edge features, quick to boot, fast in use and which brings you all the latest software.
It comes after our holidays gift, and this time it is a solstice gift =)
The distribution ISO is bootable in BIOS or UEFI from usb stick or DVD and uses the Calamares installer to guide you through installation with the minimum of effort.
The ISO also offers a means of booting EFI partitions should they become inaccessible because of boot order changes.
This distribution has been sucessfully installed and run on a dual graphics chip notebook using Bumblebee.
