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."

I had a two years experience with mandrake (begening with Mandrake 8 and Mandrake 9.1 -good- and left after mandriva 10 due to unresolved problems with badly installed software and poor community support.

After a short Suse try, I switched to Ubuntu Dapper. Find all solutions to my unresolved problems due to good community support. Now with Feisty and I realize that the distro is really getting better every time. I do not intend to change ...for now.

So this article does not surprise me.
