    Mandriva 2008.1 KDE hits a sweet spot

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | It is amazing how well Mandriva performs on what is now considered limited
    | hardware. It may not be the most exciting distribution you can install, but
    | it runs as expected and performs the complex multimedia tasks I want it to
    | run in the manner to which I have become accustomed with earlier
    | distributions and releases. It has truly come a long way and is worthy of
    | first consideration as an alternative OS.

    Mandriva

    | Anyway, I downloaded Mandriva because I'm tired of Vista. Vista does not
    | allow you do easily do high-level, complex things like text editing or web
    | browsing. It doesn't seem to understand the "Shut Down" or the "Sleep"
    | commands. It does, however, look all kinds of pretty, and it does run
    | Microsoft Office, which I don't think Mandriva does. But I use
    | OpenOffice.org. Dang.

    Spamowitz had one of his 5 daily cola bowel movements. He gets backed up if
    he doesn't post 'Feeling the heat at Microsoft' multiple times every day.

    What are these Linux loons so afraid of?
    They accuse us of being afraid of Linux and being Microsoft shills yet they
    post far more messages about Microsoft than any of us do.
