I have been an old timer in linux (used slackware, debian, suse, fedora, etc) and I have always liked, since back in the days, the simplicity of Mandrake.

I like OpenMandriva because it seems to follow the same rule: Keep things simple and have them running with zero (or minimal) configuration.

I would definitely recommend this distro to any newcomer (or even intermediate user) in the linux world.

Good job OpenMandriva!!!

I like it and always liked Mandriva based distros, but unfortunately the community is small and it's only developed by 3 part-time developers (according to their forums), it could be a perfect distro if more people contributed.

Stunning!

Everything works. It is a breeze to install and recognizes everything, I am astounded that this is as well polished as it is. Some very useful apps and any that you do not have can be downloaded.

I installed wine and a couple of other bits of software that I use. The Plasma 5 desktop is stunning and I love using it. I think I have finally made a decision for my main operating system and it will be Mandriva. It does what it says on the tin! Or DVD disc!

The configuration of the system is done by a fantastic piece of software and is easy to setup. The graphics for the buttons are first class and I really like Quipzilla web browser. Some really good software and it simply works out of the box

Good work guys. I'm impressed.
