Experiences with Mandriva 2008

A short list of experiences I promised:

  • Did I miss something or is LocaleDrake really missing Finland in the list of countries?
  • I somehow got the feeling that quite a lot of progress dialogs and such were popping up, sometimes even one popup on top of another
  • RpmDrake rocks
  • I found it weird that no sudo was installed by default
  • Something I’m very satisfied with is that Mandriva felt quite fast on my old-fashioned computer
  • Kate should definitely be the default text-editor 😉
  • Like Wysota said, Mandriva is indeed very Windows-like

There’s nothing remarkable I’m dissatisfied with. But I must admit I already switched back to Kubuntu. It just feels somehow more comfortable and homey.
