The liveCD is the standard on my work issued notebook when not at work and it runs great.
Have you installed from the DVD Free and had any issues? I keep getting missing packages until I can get past the first boot and add network repositories then urpmi them. (gnome mandriva theme pacakge, kde mandriva theme package and a package of icons with my minimal install selection)
Hopefully the next build of the DVD ISO will correct the issue. I'm not complaining since it's a 2008 version available Sept (or Oct) of 2007. I'm just curious to understand if it's just me getting a bad DVD ISO or if other's have had the issue.
I can't wait too cut my servers and workstation over to 2008 but servers won't be changed over until updates for 2007 stop coming through. I probably won't be able to hold off on the workstation once I see a clean install from the DVD Free ISO. That will also give the 2008 repositories a bit more time to bulk up.
