Reddit: Why the Mageia hate?

Friday 30th of January 2015 04:58:58 PM

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 :/

Pro tip: Find tons of open-source Android software with F-Droid

You won't, however, find F-Droid in the Google Play Store. Instead, you have to download the .apk file and install it manually. Once it's installed, the rest is just a matter of searching for an app and tapping to install. Read more
