Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring RC 1 "Serapia" released

Yep, the 2008 Spring pre-release cycle just hit the late beta...err, I mean, release candidate...stage. RC1 has lots of juicy stuff, including the new look for 2008 Spring (which is very pretty), KDE 3.5.9 and 4.0.1, some new default applications, the drakconnect / ndiswrapper bug finally fixed!, WPA-EAP support, new NVIDIA / ATI drivers, and - as the publicists say - Much, Much More. Details on the Wiki, please do test it and post bugs.

I am looking for a simple requirement, something existed but disappeared sometime. I use Linux for programming and hence when I right-click the mouse it should show 'Terminal' or 'xterm'. Can we have it please? It looks so pathetic (probly due to Desktop standardization) Linux makes us feel as surfers and not someone who can program. I request you to save us all from this disgrace. TIA, -Sviya

For GNOME, install the nautilus-open-terminal package and you'll have what you want. For KDE I'm not sure, but I expect there's a similar module.
