Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris This is a critical review of the installation, setup and actual performance of the Mandrake distribution of the GNU/Linux operating system, version 9.1, and comes as a second part of's Mandrake review. (You can see part I here.) The review will cover these areas: (1) Installation and install-related setup; (2) Post-installation system administration; and (3) System performance. The review will end with a general evaluation and will assign grades on relevant areas.

Reviews suggest something else?

It strikes me as odd that almost every couple of days there is another review of the same Linux system being posted, whether it be Mandrake, Redhat, SuSe or whatever. Why don't people write weekly reviews of Windows XP? I think the answer is the reason Linux isn't ready for the desktop for most people. Everyone's experience with it is slighly different! Oops, need this driver, hey, that isnt supported. With Windows, MS has done a good job of making everything extremely consistent (and this includes Windows crashing for the same reason on multiple PC's). Anyhow, just my two cents....
