Mageia 7 is Available for Download


Mageia is a fork of Mandriva Linux formed in September 2010 by former employees and contributors to the popular French Linux distribution. Unlike Mandriva, which is a commercial entity, the Mageia project is a community project and a non-profit organisation whose goal is to develop a free Linux-based operating system.

There are classical installer images for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, as well as live DVD’s for 64-bit Plasma, GNOME, Xfce, and 32-bit Xfce.

Don’t worry if you prefer another desktop, there is a huge selection available to install once you are online. Here is a good place to start if you are unsure about setting up your system. Full documentation is available here if you want more indepth information.

Upgrades from Mageia 6 are also supported in a number of ways. More information is available in the Release Notes.

Mageia 7 comes with a huge variety of desktops and window managers, improved support for Wayland and for hybrid graphics cards. On a more fun note, an effort was made to enhance gaming in Mageia, so there are many new upgrades and additions to the game collection.
