Development Release: OpenMandriva Lx 2014.0 Alpha 2

The OpenMandriva distribution is a full-featured Linux desktop and server, sponsored by the OpenMandriva Association. It is based on ROSA, a Russian Linux distribution project which forked Mandriva Linux in 2012, incorporating many of Mandriva's original tools and utilities and adding in-house enhancements.

The goal of OpenMandriva is to facilitate the creation, improvement, promotion and distribution of free and open-source software in general, and OpenMandriva projects in particular.

Kate Lebedeff has announced the availability of the second alpha release of OpenMandriva Lx 2014.0: "OpenMandriva Lx 2014 alpha 2 is here. To keep up to high standards we have decided to move the beta to the RC1 date and have the alpha 2 today, to deliver more fun to you. This change does not affect the final release date. 

 OpenMandriva Lx 2014.0 has been improving with every iteration – we've tried to make sure that your system works in a stable yet powerful manner. The kernel has been upgraded to 3.12.13 nrjQL – a powerful variant of the 3.12.13 kernel. 

The CPU and RCU have been configured with full pre-emption and boost mode, while we've also added the CK1 and BFQ patchsets to provide optimisations (including a better CPU load scheduler, better disk I/O scheduler, a better memory manager via UKSM, and TuxOnIce for better suspension and hibernation), designed with desktop system performance and responsiveness in mind."
