I have never reviewed Mageia before and there is a reason for that. Mageia has always been my “Eleanor”. The “Eleanor” reference comes from the film “Gone in 60 seconds” and refers to the one car that Nicolas Cage cannot steal because something happens when he tries to do so. Mageia has always given me that sort of a problem. I tried Mageia 1 and 2 without success and rather than write a bad review I decided to write nothing at all. Mageia though appears to be one of the more popular distributions and I can’t just go on in this fashion. Therefore I have installed it, tried it and now I am going to tell you about my experience. Other people may well have a different experience to me but as I say, Mageia is my Eleanor. This is a review of the Gnome version of Mageia 3.
