Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Mayank Sharma from Linux.com tries Mandriva 2007 Spring on several machines. He finds the distro to be very stable, sporting a good package selection, just the documentation a bit sparse.

Mandriva has the same buzz as SLES. Both are distros focused on the enterprise market, not community. And the fact that you obtain advantages by subscribing to Mandriva Club, it makes people look like if have to pay to use Mandriva.
Opensuse, for example, have much more attention by the crowd.
I dont mean its a bad thing for Mandriva to focus more on the enterprise (because Mandriva has a focus, instead of Ubuntu, IMO).

We consider individual users a very important market for Mandriva and always have. The mainline Mandriva releases are always designed with individual users (or small offices) in mind. We have a separate product line (the Corporate line) for enterprise users. Please don't get the impression that Mandriva Linux is for enterprises, it is not.
