Why should anyone choose Mandriva over Ubuntu? I really have no clue. What makes it different or better?

The tools and utilities, available packages, the look-and-feel and so forth? I have tried Ubuntu, I did try to like it, but I just couldn't. Not to mention that I always had some issues with Ubuntu, either it crashed on me all the time, or sound didn't work, or it screwed up some configuration files I had altered or so forth. Mandriva just works a whole lot better for me.

That said, I hope 2009.1 final arrives soon ^^
