With an announcement on the official Mandriva blog, I made a quick move to get ilughyd and registered as one among those to celebrate the launch.

We did have an awesome party, with ~20 attendees. Thanks to Mandriva for their goodies and Primora for their office space for the party.

We enjoyed our own little Mandriva 2009 chocolate cake and drinks. Attendees had brought desktop PCs’ and laptops to get them installed with Mandriva. 🙂
Some of them made Mandriva as their only operating system (removing an existing proprietary OS), while some were content with dual-boot and installations on VirtualBox.

Notebooks with Mandriva 2009!

People just loved the Mandriva interface and went eye-popping over KDE widgets in combination with CompizFusion.
We concluded the party with small sessions on Mandriva Control Center, rpmdrake and Compiz Settings Manager.

Most pics are available here; couldn’t add all of them( argh! that 200 pics limit on Flickr).

A special thanks to the support staff at Primora for cleaning up the mess attendees made with the cake.
