Mandriva 2008 Spring vs. Ubuntu 8.04 LTS ... and how neither one wins
,----[ Quote ]
| You might remember from my old Ubuntu 7.10 vs Mandriva 2008 story and later
| from the Fedora vs. OpenSUSE vs. Ubuntu on both x86 and PPC that the winner
| of the 'end of 2007 Linux competition' was Ubuntu 7.10 (but only by a whisker
| or so) - and I was actually mentioning that the competition only started to
| get more interesting - so now we are a the end of the spring 2008 and it's
| time to see how things have evolved ...
It shouldn't be surprising. They use all the same packages. IBM's Linux can't
beat 'HP's Linux' in peer production mode.
