I used Mandriva on two machines in the past, but one of the experiences
(Mandrake 9.2) was less successful than the other. I had a friend migrated
from Windows to Linux Mandriva 2006 and he liked it far more than Ubuntu 5,
which I installed for him initially. I am not a GNOME person. Neither was
he. Hardware compatibility in Mandriva was better too as far as I could
tell, but maybe it was down to kernel versions.
Michael Dell: "If we say we like Ubuntu, then people will say we picked the
wrong one. If we say we like and support Ubuntu, Novell, Red Hat, and
Xandros, then someone would ask us, 'Why don't you support Mandriva? The
challenge we have with picking one is that we think we'd disenchant the
other distributions' supporters."
