Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "After making a lot of progress with Mandriva Linux 2007, I thought perhaps Mandriva had turned over a new leaf, and was using that release as a starting point for an overall better quality operating environment. I was totally wrong. Both the PowerPack Edition and Discovery/LX have slid so far back with version 2007.1 that I have serious doubts as to the future of Mandriva's viability as a commercial desktop operating system."

Works fine for me

I have to agree with the author about the errata. It's good to let the users know in advance but this time the errata is..quite long.

I do not have the system like the author. I installed it on a Centrino laptop. The battery notification actually works (I get about 2 hours) whereas Ubuntu 7.04 first gave me 19 hours and quickly down to 15 min ;)

Haven't used it a lot excepting for web surfing and audacity. The wireless network applet is quite nice, even better than the one in Ubuntu as it does detect my Netgear WPN511 and you could easily switch between different AP's.

Not sure why they don't have any suspend, hibernate button but running "s2ram -f -a 1" would do the trick for me ;) Turn on the power button, desktop and network are back to live. So far, I'm happy.

Default install of Spring puts klaptop in the system tray, it has suspend options when you right click.
