"Mandriva (formerly Mandrake) was the first distribution I used
back in 2001 when I started using Linux. For a while I stayed with
Mandriva then moved to SUSE, REDHAT and so on. Mandriva's earlier
decisions like releasing their OS to the public after a month or so
and some annoying bugs made me to stay out of Mandriva but recently
I tried Mandriva's 2008 release and was really impressed with their
work. So I have decided to follow their next release Mandriva 2008
Spring closely, which has been scheduled for 9th April..."
