Well, I have worked.
In fact, I have worked so hard that I fell sick, so I figured I could indulge myself while I recover... And what better way than relaxing in the peaceful world of operating systems ;-)
So, after fixing some weird problems related to VirtualBox in Mageia 4, I could finally go back to distro testing.
The first distro that I tested was Mageia 5 beta. As usual, as the main changes are under the hood and the artwork is that of Mageia 4, it was difficult to spot the differences.

On closer inspection, however, one can see Mageia is now running KDE 4.14 and some other updated software.

|After login, the first thing to do in Windows: Use Internet Explorer to download Firefox!|
I will keep playing with Windows 10 to see what else this OS offers.
|Windows virtual desktops: they switch if you hover them for 4 secs and you cannot drag programs|
|Linux virtual desktops: switching is animated, they are well-marked, and they have drag and drop capabilities... not to mention that they do not change on their own!|
