Ars technica takes
at Mandriva 2010 Spring. "The OS ships with KDE 4.4.3 and version 220.127.116.11 of the Linux kernel. Mandriva has its own custom user interface theme that is used across both KDE and GNOME, and its default KDE configuration deviates from that of upstream KDE. It uses a Folder View containment as the default activity and it has a conventional application menu instead of KDE's Kickoff menu. These changes are intended to make KDE 4 feel more like the classic user experience of the KDE 3.5.x series.
