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."

While I agree that Mandriva has problems in some areas like management, client relationship and bad marketing, Mandriva Linux is very good in general and particularly in desktops. MCC has only equivalent in Suse (yast).

It is ironic that you never see artcles about problems and bugs with Ubuntu, Suse or Fedora. They are perfect ? Obviously not.

I begin to think that the problem with Mandriva is that it is a french company and therefore it is not popular in USA. I see that KDE suffers the same critics because is basically an european project, even being technically superior to GNOME for many years and even today in my opinion.

If you can read spanish or use google/babelfish translate, I recommend read this article about FUD against Mandriva
