I am aware Mandrivia is not a derivitive of opensuse nor ubuntu (it was a redhat spin-off back in the day but that doesnt really hold true anymore)

Ubuntu is more than just debian testing with open office, have you used th new network manager? THAT is (was) a new, unique feature.

Whats the comaprable feature in this release?

Please note im asking what is new in THIS release, NOT mandrivia in general

Is XFCE faster than a gnome install? they both run everything on the same gtk+ framework as far as I understand so in reality, where is this performace boost coming from? less memory usage of loading the panel?
