Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "In less than two weeks time, six months after the great Mandriva 2007.1 Spring release, Mandriva 2008.0 will be ready and published. Currently, Release Candidate 2 is out, it's your last chance to test it and make sure everything is working before the final release! There were great ideas at the start of the development phase, and in in those six months that have passed, Mandriva has always been one of the most active projects on This gives much hope for lots of improvements, so let's take a look at what can be expected from Mandriva 2008.0."

Time for me to go back to mandriva (from opensuse) ? Well worth a spin from what I can tell.

It has to be the effect of the Ubuntu domination that the other desktop distros now give it a real push. May there be many winners.

I'll definitely give it a spin, although I don't believe that I'll leave openSUSE.
In any case I respect Mandriva a lot more now than when I had to move to SUSE and Libranet because of hardware compatibility issues.

I thought of switching to mandriva 2007.1 from opensuse, aftering using it for a couple of days. But after one update, everything broke down. And stability was the main criterion when I moved from Mandriva to SuSE

Any more details on what broke? How did you run your update? I ask because I've now four Mandriva boxes running 2007.1 and non have had an issue with urpmi --auto-update including my workstation (the most complicated install of the bunch). I'd be interested to know what broke so I can keep an eye out for it on my own machines.
