Thanks for the overview
I haven't used this distro since it was called Mandrake but I remember really liking it. I was wary of it being rpm based since I'd gotten tired of "rpm hell" on Redhat 5 & 6. But it worked well with my hardware and was pretty stable.
I've used PCLinuxOS off and on which is a derivative but I think I'll give Mageia a whirl now that I'm back on OpenSuse (just can't stay away from rpm I guess). Thanks again!
