Mandriva Linux: What Windows should be

Filed under
MDV

For the last 15 or more years I have been waiting for Linux to be as user frienly as Windows. As more and more impressive software came out for windows, this grew stronger and stronger. Now, I am finally satisfied. I installed and instantly saw that my life was about to get easier. I spend about 16 hours a day coding and googling. So, my operating system must be top notch. I also do nto like to sit and type commands all day either. But with Mandriva 2009, I do not have to!

It happens everytime my girlfriend goes to MySpace. She gets infected with malware, despite running Spybot SD and AVG. Great job, now I am going to have to clean her PC out again right? Wrong, I formatted the drive and installed Mandriva.

I am sorry that you feel that way. The only bug I have seen is with watching FLVs online from time to time, which is the fault of Adobe. Everything else has been fast and stable for me.
