    That statement is nothing but marketing hype. All distros make such statements...but Mandriva is quite, quite good and very newbie friendly. PCLinuxOS is based on Mandriva.

    Mandriva has been having some financial problems here of late and just about went under but someone or some group came to their rescue. Now all is well. I'm glad to see it survived. I have a soft spot for Mandriva. It's the very first linux distro (10.0) I ever used (back in 2004). It was called Mandrake back then.
