Thanks for the link, but I prefer apt based distros if I am going to use Linux, currently using Debian Lenny.

I have always preferred apt based systems too Jake, but the URPMI system in Mandriva is actually rather good.

I've been playing with Mandriva 2009.1 for a few days now and I have to say I am very impressed with it.

I think Mandrake 7(??) was the last time I used it back in 2001. It has improved a great deal since then.

URPMI beats YUM hands down and is very close to the standard set by APT.
