Sure you've not got /hardware/ problems? Or is that just your way of
describing your preferences/choices? :-p

I've found Mandriva to work fine and for years at a time. Current uptime
for one Mandriva box I play on is: "top - 13:11:46 up 445 days, 12:29"

No problems there. I'm just waiting for when the PSU blows up or a fan
fails! (And yes, it does a lot more than 'firewall' duties.)

Then again, I am a bit of a Mandriva fan ;-)

Have fun,
