[Wolves] Mandriva Spring

I've not heard of anything Loco wise. I was considering giving Ubuntu 
another go, I use Mandriva with a gnome desktop.

When I was sat tossing up which distro to go with on the then new 
desktop I did alot of reading and at the time Mandriva came out as a 
speedy distro, I don't know how it compares now.
I wanted something everybody could use which I wouldn't have to spend 
all my time fixing or configuring. I like the MCC (Mandriva Control 
Centre) which brings all the settings into one easy to find place and 
the One CD comes with the necessary evil of proprietary video drivers. I 
think Ubuntu was not so polished then. At the time I was running a 
business from it and whilst its fun to faff it isn't so much when 
there's a customer on the phone. I've stuck with it since because of its 
ease of use.
I've installed Fedora, but don't really like it, on one family laptop 
and have a broken T40 thinkpad to get fixed (If anyone knows somebody 
that can resolder the ati video chip?) for the distro of my own choosing.

Perhaps its time to broaden my horizons!
