OpenMandriva, one of several Linux distributions riding off the Mandriva/Mandrake lineage, released its first-ever OpenMandriva Lx Beta this weekend.
OpenMandriva went into beta in June
and after months of bug-fixing the developers have come up with a beta. OpenMandriva Lx Beta is shipping the KDE 4.11 desktop, four different launchers (Lancelot, KickOff, SimpleWelcome, and HomeRun), is powered by the Linux 3.11 kernel, and the DrakX installer has been dropped.
