Wifi

Even wifi worked nice out-of-box

Does Mandriva RC3 handle wi-fi any differently to other leading distros (say SuSe)?

The reason I ask is because I know of a few people who were having problems with wifi cards and Linux (to the point where they were even advised to wrap some Windows drivers!). After further digging I recommended BSD (mainly due to the easy in which I've configured both wired and wi-fi networks) however this wasn't an ideal solution if Linux was your preferred *nix OS.
