Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Mandriva is now testing a new hardware compatibility list system based on feedback from ordinary Mandriva users. The 'harddrake' Mandriva hardware utility can upload a list of your system's components to the Mandriva database, and you can then use the simple web front end to let others know how well each piece of hardware works with Mandriva. The system and the interface have already been in testing by Mandriva Club members and other enthusiasts. You can join in and help test it further by posting in the Mandriva forums (you can post in the community chat forum if you are not a member).

If I'm not mistaken, Ubuntu has been doing exactly the same stuff for a while. I remember submitting my harwdare specs with personal comments to their servers. It would be nice if all the distros could have the same HCL.
