+1 to that.

Mandriva still beats hand down all other "desktop" distros.

Sure, the included software in 2006 is "old", although this is caused by using yearly releases, instead of one every 6 months.

On the other hand, you don't need to upgrade every 6 months and the system is very stable ;)

Also, recently Mandriva is adding more and more value to the Club. IT is a good sign that Mandriva is at last listening to its subscribers (a.k. Club members)

Cheers
