Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Earlier this week, Mandriva released Mandriva Linux 2008.0, the latest version of their flagship Linux distribution. Mandriva was so kind as to provide me with a copy of Mandriva Linux 2008.0 PowerPack, the commercial version. Back when it was named Mandrake, it was my first ever Linux distribution (I bought a Linux magazine), so I have always had a special place for Mandriva. Read on for a review.

I prefer Vera / DejaVu monospace, honestly. Don't much like terminus.

I can respect your preference. Still, that's a poor reason to exclude terminus fonts from the default installation of Mandriva -- some users might have different preferences than you. Of course, it's eventually your choice but I'd just like to point out that there might be users who prefer the terminus fonts, like me. Adding the terminus fonts wouldn't eat much additional disk space, I think.

Well, in theory, there is at least *one* user who likes every font in existence, otherwise they wouldn't exist. Should we therefore include every font in the distro in the default install?
