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."

I just added Virtual Dimension to my flashdrive. I'll be using once I confirm that it does not crash the system or required anything more than what I copied from the install folder befure uninstalling it again.

This will replace MultiDesk which has been terrible but then I'm using a version dated long ago so it may have gotten better.

You can also try VirtualWin - - which is also good and has a whole slew of optionally loadable modules some of which are quite cool.
