[SATLUG] Why I choose Mandriva?

Actually I tested out various Live CD's before choosing Mandriva 2010. 
Ubuntu (9.10), Madriva 2009, Fedora (V. 11 KDE & GNOME), Vector Linux (6), Knoppix (6.0.1), Mepis (8.0.10), Suse (11.1), Kubuntu (9.04), PC Linux 2009, & gNewsense.

I really like Mandriva so far. It installed my wifi automatically and has lots of great programs.

It is always advised to try out different Linux distributions... but... If you are running Mandriva 2010 and you like it, I doubt very much that you will be impressed by Ubuntu ;)
