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."

"...the rear [sic.] cases when I have o use windows I feel like I'm all tied up - only one desktop.."

Windows has MSVDM (one of the MS PowerToys) which works very nicely tho' you're limited to 4 desktops. Or you could use the GNU licenced Virtual Dimension - - which works better and has more.

I don't use Windows anymore but its really boring when Linux jocks slag off MS for not having features that are there all along.
