The first alpha release of OpenMandriva Linux is now available. This new OpenMandriva distribution is derived from the Russian-based ROSA Linux distribution
, which in turn was forked from mainline Mandriva last year.
OpenMandriva Lx/2013.0 is the new version in development and this alpha release features the Linux 3.8 kernel, KDE SC 4.10, LibreOffice 4.0, Firefox 21, Clementine 1.1, and ROMP 1.6.
OpenMandriva hopes to be in beta by the end of July.
