Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "Mandriva Linux has a history of inconsistency; one release will be superb, and the next one will be so bug-ridden and feature-weak that it's unusable. The only commonality among all releases are the excellent system configuration tools, which have continued to evolve over the years to match an increasing level of complexity in the desktop software stack. True to form, Mandriva 2008.0 is an excellent release, following the terrible 2007.1, and the just as excellent 2007.0. Some of the important things that were dropped from the previous release (Cedega, LinDVD) are back, and some of the problems (huge K menu button, cluttered menus) have been mitigated."

Mine too.

My employer switched me and my colleages to Windows due to Office lock-in, from Unix (IRIX, HPUX) and Linux (Redhat).

Now I have to work on several projects, all on one desktop. And all of those add-on virtual desktops you can get for windows are either painfully destabilizing the machine, or don't integrate into the task bar and clutter my desktop.
And the reminder popup windows from the calendar do not span multiple desktops. Yuck!!!!

I want to have multiple desktops, I feel chained with only one.
