Mandriva LINUX 2008


I finally installed Mandriva Linux 2008 "Operating System" on my PC and Laptop, everything went great and the installation was simple and takes only half an hour, on the PC the 3D desktop and modems didn’t work, on my laptop everything works great including my ATI Raidon 200 VGA which is great, but sure the modem didn’t work, I tried to install drivers for my ADSL modem Sagem F@st 800-840 but In the end I gave up, I am still not good enough with the shell (Konsole) “AKA Dos for Windows”, Mandriva comes with a great Open Source software package like OpenOffice (Everything in Microsoft office including Financial manager), Games, System tools, Programming Tools, Databases, Servers like apache, compilers, Graphic (GIMP) & drawing programs, Drivers for most known hardware and other useful good programs.

if you want the Sagem F@st 800-840 drivers click here.

The Operating system is still not perfect because of some bugs in media streaming software, but it's very user friendly and perfect for windows users, it's so sexy and fast, and most of all it's open source.

After installation it takes less then 4 GB and your windows will stay untouched and operating so you can use both Windows and Mandriva Linux using the multi boot manager Lilo or Grub.

Download Mandriva linux.

Or simply buy it on a DVD which is as cheap as a blank DVD.

Don't worry you will be able to use windows also "Sure you need it sometimes for things you didn't learn how to do with Linux" inside linux or on another portion on the disk.

Following is a reference to the movie white noise, what you see on this page is not my opinion, and I am not interested on this stuff, if you come here than you are probably searching after watching the movie or researching tria mera term, this is for educational purposes only.



The expression, Third Day, appears in several narratives in the Bible. (Occasionally, it is “three days.”) Some biblical interpreters have thought that some of these third day motifs have significance by signifying a certain divine principle, and a few interpreters have thought that they are cryptic in meaning. Why? Interestingly, these narratives record some of the most important events in the history of Israel. And surprisingly, except for the Bible’s mention of the third day, the seventh day, and its account of creation in Genesis 1, the Bible rarely mentions the other days of the week.
The Number of the Beast is described in the Book of Revelation 13:18. From the King James translation:[5]
