Mageia 4 Cinnamon, KDE and GNOME 3 screen shots

Mageia 4, the latest release of Mageia, a distribution derived from Mandriva Linux, was made available for download yesterday.

Aside from the KDE and GNOME 3 desktop environments, Mageia 4 also features support for Cinnamon and MATE. This article presents screen shots from test installations of the Cinnamon, GNOME 3 and KDE desktops.

One of the new features of Mageia 4, is the greeter application called Mageia Welcome. It looks good, but I was expecting something along the lines of Kaptan of Pardus or Kapudan of Chakra, that is, a greeter application that can be used to customize different aspects of the desktop. But Mageia’s greeter is not like that. It’s just a gateway application to other system management applications. The next four screen shots show its interface.

This is the application’s main interface.
