Bye-bye, Mandriva …

Okay. One of the reasons I didn’t post for a while there was that I was busy looking for a new Linux distro to use. Those who know me know I’ve been sold on Mandrake/Mandriva since it first forked from RedHat. Mandrake 7.2 was the version that convinced me that Linux was a serious operating system. I’ve still got my original boxed set for Mandrake 8.1. I installed 9.0, 9.1, 9.2. All wonderful. Mandrake 10.0 is the distro that convinced me that I didn’t need MS anymore. Madnrake 10.1 and 10.2 didn’t disappoint. Mandriva 2005LE, the first version after the merger with Conectiva, was excellent. (Yeah, it was 10.2 repackaged, but still.) I installed Mandriva 2006, and was deleriously happy. Then, in the fall of 2006, I installed their latest effort: Mandriva 2007 Powerpack.
