The new version should be out mid summer to early fall with many new features and changes.

I'm looking forward to this as well. Given that LX3 was genuinely very good software with just a couple issues that happen to be of a showstopper level for my usage, I will have to try out LX4.

I would love to see the Mandriva name get back to where it was formerly. Talk about a popular distro and the influence on many other forks.

That was, in it's day, by far the nicest looking distro IMO. It was the one that although I didn't get online with it at first, it was a big decider in my liking Linux because it's KDE desktop was just SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO nice looking and working compared to anything else out at the time (including Win 95/98).

First time I saw Mandriva I was in love right away and used it for quite some time. PCLinuxOS eventually became a favorite but to this day I identify with Mandriva the most.
