First OpenMandriva Lx final release is here


The OpenMandriva Community is proud to announce our first release, OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0!

OpenMandriva Lx is an exciting free Desktop Operating System that aims to cater to and interest first time and advanced users alike. It has the breadth and depth of an advanced system but is designed to be simple and straightforward in use.

This release, OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 is dedicated to the memory of Ron (Ronald van Pomeren), aka Arvi Pingus. Ron was one of the first contributors to OpenMandriva, dedicated, professional – and just a very good person and friend to many of us. We miss him.

So what’s new?
We’ve organized a full overview and screenshot tour for you – check it out!

From RC2, nothing much has changed – mainly bugfixing and polishing. We did mix up our polling results from RC2, and it turns out that SimpleWelcome was the winner, instead of Kickoff. SimpleWelcome has been made the default launcher for this release, but Kickoff is still included in the ISO, in case you prefer it.

Our background contest, The Flavour of Freedom, has resulted in 11 new wallpapers that have been included in 2013.0! They are a selection of photographs that members of the community have both submitted and voted on.

How can I get this?
We strongly encourage all users to read the release notes before proceeding.

The system requirements, at a minimum, are:
A 32-bit (i586) or 64-bit (x86_64) computer.
640 MB of memory (for Virtual Machines, at least 1536 MB minimum).
10 GB of disk space.
A graphics card that preferably supports at least 1024×768.
A method of installing the ISO (either via a DVD drive or a USB stick).

RC1 and RC2 users can simply upgrade.

We provide releases via torrent (our recommended method), our mirror system ftp as well as SourceForge. Go on, get it, and join the fun!
