It's kind of sad... Mandriva, the distro that made me migrate from Windows, does not exist now. I made some changes on the blog to reflect that fact. For example, as I regularly use seven Linux distros, my badge now includes their logos.
This feels kind of exciting, too. In a way, those changes also show me how much I have learned about Linux since 2009.
This has been a rewarding journey. Let us see:
- 2009, I start dual-booting Mandriva and Windows XP.
- 2010, Mandriva, Mepis, Pardus share my HDs; I no longer use Windows.
- 2011 (jan), LibreOffice is released.
- 2011 (jul), PCLinuxOS becomes part of my Linux family.
- 2011 (sept), Mageia makes its debut and earns a place with the other distros.
- 2012 OpenMandriva Association is born.
- 2013 (feb), PicarOS (GalpON MiniNO) becomes my daughter's favorite distro.
- 2013 (mar), AntiX is added to the distros powering my netbook.
- 2013 (sept), I install Pisi 1.0 RC1 to my laptop.
- 2013 (nov), OpenMandriva Lx RC1 shares a place on my desktop and laptop.
Wow! Lots of changes...
