Mandriva worked on a better tool to install, uninstall and update software. The new RPMDrake gives you a quick view of what you have, what you can install, what Mandriva recommends, which updates are available and much more.

'Ia Ora' Mandriva theme

Last time the Mandriva theme was changed, it was for Mandriva Linux 9.1, with the introduction of the Galaxy theme. For the 2007 version, we elaborated a brand new theme, named Ia Ora (“hello” in French Polynesian), changing everything from window borders to widgets and icons. The new theme is simpler and lighter, more luminous, with several colors and an "iced" effect for outline windows.
