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."

Bugs or polish?

This release seems to have both.
Potentially it is a very polished distro.
But, for instance, I had to do a lot of extra work in order to configure pppoe, something a newbie is definitely not capable of doing.
I had random freezes while doing very ordinary configuration.
Next I want to know if updates are still the absolute pain they have been for several releases.

Addendum: the update was very smooth. However Firefox crashed while writing this, thus still mixed feelings.
