Is it time for you to dump Windows XP, or maybe to abandon Windows altogether? Windows 8 has improved significantly with the 8.1 upgrade.

After that I ran some benchmarks and here are a few performance results comparing SteamOS 1.0 Beta to Ubuntu 13.10 with Intel HD Graphics.

Finally Mageia 4 beta 2 is available for testing. Lots of effort was put into fixing the remaining blocking bugs. This is not yet finished but we are proud of the current results. Lots of work was done on drakxtools and classical installer to switch from that good old GTK+ 2 to GTK+ 3. The documentation and i18n teams have also improved a lot of online documents and translations to make it available in as many languages as possible. Your feedback is more essential than ever to finalize this fourth release of Mageia!
