Mageia 3 beta 1: release hell strikes again!

We initially planned Mageia 3 beta 1 today but release time can be unpredictable.

Beta 1 will come with some big changes in installer and it took much more time than we expected to integrate it.

QA is in progress on isos.

Stay tuned!

    Don’t usually bother with network installs nor beta’s. So this could have easily gone badly. What I found was something I’ve often whinged for in an OS. The ability to set up what you actually need (or don’t need) before anything is installed or downloaded. So your OS, is even more yours.
    Well pleased!

    Please take your time. Timely releases are important, but they are no match for quality releases.

    Mageia 2 is pretty awesome for my desktop (love it), but have to run Ubuntu 12.10 on my notebook (Samsung 7 Chronos) for now because some HW issues. My HDD just can not stop turning on and off every few seconds, even if I have 8GB RAM – probably some old kernel issue – will address it in a bug report. I’m looking forward to Mageia 3.
    Good job, guys!
