I always liked Mandrive, well I did like the 9.x versions; however can anyone tell me if the configuration center is decent now (functional as well as aesthetical)?

When I used it sometimes it felt like it was being held together with duct tape... sorry to put it so crude :|

It has changed a lot since 9.x (as has just about everything else about Mandriva). it's hard to know if it will meet your expectations, easiest way to tell is to try it out. Grab the One live CD, boot it up, and check out the control center.
