Poor review with heartwarming community response

Filed under
MDV

I read this poor review of Mandriva Linux 2010 (the only poor review I’ve seen so far actually), which I got a bit provoked about, not that much because I’m taking things personal, but it’s rather more about stupid people pisses me off!

The reviewer seemed to only actually try review the One edition and then trailed off making up his own irrelevant and ignorant FUD conclusions about the Powerpack version which he didn’t tested, about how we seemed to be more interested in pushing proprietary software (despite he later made some ignorat complains about the trouble from lack of this in the Free edition later on), then on and on.

Mandriva

I'm glad to see him straighten that guy out and glad to see the community come forth like it did. I've been an on/off Mandriva user since Mandrake 7.0. I guess I'll never totally leave it. As with many Linux users, I explore other distros and even use one of them as my main distro for a while. However, I just keep coming back to Mandriva time and time again. Wonderful distro. I really hope they can find their way into the black and become profitable, again. It would be a shame for them to wither away because Linux and Open Source would surely be far less user friendly without it. Please, anyone that's a Mandriva user that's reading this, contribute to the Fund The Mandriva Project and get it going strong, again. They've been releasing a free-as-in-beer distro since the very beginning for everyone to download - long before multi-millionaire owners and community distros came onto the scene.

But with Linux 4.10 now out, three groups of changes are worth paying close attention to because they improve performance and enable feature sets that weren’t possible before on Linux. Here’s a rundown of those changes to 4.10 and what they likely will mean for you, your cloud providers, and your Linux applications. Read more
