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.

Hya, after stints as a quantum researcher at Georgia Tech Quantum Optics & Quantum Telecom Lab, and the University of Maryland Joint Quantum Institute, I’m now working on superconducting qubit quantum processors at Bleximo. I’ll be speaking during Algorithm Conference in Austin, Texas, July 16 – 18, 2020. Meet me there and let’s chat about progress and hype in quantum computing.
