Mandriva is about the only flavor of Linux that Almost properly detected all my hardware. I've yet to find a distro that properly detects and configures my sound card and monitor.

Otherwise I would have switched permanently by now. I'm just not interested in spending all day trying to fix it. Go ahead and mod me down, but I'm telling the truth about my experience, not trolling.

About once or twice a year I try Linux again to see if it works for me, but so far, not yet. But I'm hopeful that someday it'll all just work without me having to fiddle.
