    Hello all,

    I've written a long and thorough review of Mandriva 2009 running KDE 4.1.

    I've tested the distro on three machines, including 2 laptops and 1 virtual machine and done quite a bit of checks: Wireless, Compiz, Web camera, multimedia codecs, NTFS support, installation, updates, the choice of applications, unique features, issues, and more.

    If you're interested:

    Comments and suggestions are welcome.

    Regards,
    Mrk

    Mandriva is on a release cycle like Ubuntu, its not a rolling release.
