Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "Though delayed for a while and later to market than most Mandriva fans would probably prefer, the new Mandriva Linux 2007 PowerPack Edition is finally here, nearly a year after the previous release. 2007 is typical Mandriva through and through: attractively themed in KDE, easy to install without skipping the technical details, a little bug-ridden here and there, and full of new and interesting software technologies. This release does have its own identity, though; not only has the standard theme been redesigned for the first time in several years, but this is the first Mandriva release to include a legal DVD movie player."

Let Mandriva go. It's dead, Jim. Fedora/Ubuntu have the free desktop pretty much covered (along with numerous smaller projects, including BSDs), Xandros, Suse and Linspire are better "pay-for-it" options, and Mandriva has obviously long ago forgotten whatever they seemed to know in the era of Mandrake 8. As the Stones would say, "I used to love her, but it's all over now".
