Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris LinxForums reviews Mandriva 2007, and concludes: "If Mandriva could have improved their packages, their artwork and fix a few little things here and there they could have made this release the best on the market. They got really close though, and although I can find things to criticize I am still very impressed by some of the innovations and the overall quality."

Not a chance, we all check the iso download with the md5sum provided.

tmanop2006 got it, the mandriva distrib, when you heavily use it, is an overall deception.

You install one or two new apps and the system is going crazy enough to go search the web for any solution available. I did this during one year, learned a lot, but lost a lot of time too.

Now I'm on Ubuntu, and I did tried Fedora Core and Suse before switching to Ubuntu.

The only difference is the package management system, if you look at it. RPM vs DEB and I like DEB much better than RPM. It's much more solid. Not in theory, but in practice.

Oh did I said that Suse RPM are a lot better than Mandriva ? But again the Yast for me is not a tool, it's a weapon of mass destruction.
