A few years back when I realized that Linux was becoming my passion, and that Lycoris was not powerfully enough for my needs, I found Mandrake. In Mandrake I found a powerfully easy to use and imminently likable Distro. It was leading if not bleeding edge, keeping the repositories very up to date and full of the latest applications. I loved it! No questions asked. With the newest release, and all the hype of the merger with Conectiva and Lycoris, I felt it was time for another look.
A great promise, a great look, an awesome configuration program, and poor for Linux stability.
