OpenMandriva LX

OpenMandriva LX is a continuation of the defunct Mandriva distribution, which was started in 2012 by the community when the Mandriva S.A. abandoned the consumer product. The project operates under the OpenMandriva Association.

The first version was released in 2013 and was based on Mandriva Linux 2011. Further releases were made in 2014 and 2015, before the version number was changed to 3.0 with the 2016 release.

KDE is used as the default desktop environment, however LXQt is also offered as an alternative.
