For users of the OpenMandriva operating system the OpenMandriva Lx 2014.1 took place on Friday.

The OpenMandriva Lx 2014.1 release features the Linux 3.15.10 kernel, KDE 4.13.3 desktop, Firefox 32, Mesa 10.2.6, X.Org Server 1.15.2, and other updated but not too bleeding-edge packages.

For the 2014.1 release, developers spent most of the time working to reduce the boot time, which for this Mandriva-derived OS is at 17 seconds or about 12 seconds from an SSD.
