Hey guys, I've noticed a pattern here: each time I say something good about Mageia, I get massively downvoted. For a while I just thought I'd shut the fuck up about it, but curiosity finally overwhelms me and I feel compelled to ask: why do you guys hate it so much? I've used Linux since 2007 and of all the distros I've tried (Ubuntu, Slackware, Arch, Mint, etc), Mageia has been the most stable and with the fewest compatibility issues, on all the machines I've installed it ever since I first tested it in summer 2012. I've been consistently using it and it has never disappointed. So I really want to know the reasons why this sub is against it... I feel like I'm missing something. Shouldn't I use it? Does it have massive security holes or something like that? I feel like a fool, please enlighten me :/submitted by AnthropomorphicPenis
