Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "Mandriva Linux has a history of inconsistency; one release will be superb, and the next one will be so bug-ridden and feature-weak that it's unusable. The only commonality among all releases are the excellent system configuration tools, which have continued to evolve over the years to match an increasing level of complexity in the desktop software stack. True to form, Mandriva 2008.0 is an excellent release, following the terrible 2007.1, and the just as excellent 2007.0. Some of the important things that were dropped from the previous release (Cedega, LinDVD) are back, and some of the problems (huge K menu button, cluttered menus) have been mitigated."

Avoid the KDE4 preview -- it's so bug-ridden and non-functional that I have to wonder how the Mandriva developers could have possibly thought that it would make a good optional package for 2008.0

people might start to know why now fedora decided against ijncluding KDE4 in Fedora 8

again, why you would want Matisse when you got compiz-fusion beats me,
