Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris It's been a troubling couple of weeks for Mandriva, but I decided not to report on it since I found it hard to unravel the events leading up to all this. Now, though, the story has come to its (logical) conclusion: now that most of Mandriva's employees have been laid off, they came together and forked Mandriva. Enter Mageia.

Again with the condescending attitude. I already have a favorite distro, thanks. It's called Clonezilla.

For future reference you should probably assume that anyone who posts at a website called OSNEWS has tried a few Linux distros.

The best choice for a Linux desktop at this time is

I don't think Linux is ready for the desktop. I think it needs to bake a few more years before being pushed on the public. It's fine for servers and cell phones but on the desktop it still has too many rough edges.
