Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Jack Wallen of TechRepublic tried the Mandriva 2008 Spring and his verdict is "Mandriva Spring 2008 Live CD better than most other distributions fully installed." He claims that "This is, without a doubt, the finest release of any Linux distribution I have ever experienced in my 10+ years of using Linux."

This is where I am truly amazed. Even running as a Live CD Mandriva is out performing the fully installed gOS on the laptop.

Look I'm glad the author likes the OS. That's awesome, but flat out making dishonest claims won't get any of us anywhere. Unless you have a hard drive that is say 6+ years old, there is absolutely no possibility that a livecd outperformed a real install. Period.

Offtopic: IMHO I wish the livecd as install cd craze would go away already. I have no need to load up an entire desktop full of bloat just to run one little installer application.
