Ubuntu 9.10 Live CD and Mandriva One 2010: Reviewed and Compared

Extras: The numlock utility is not installed on Ubuntu. You may install it by typing sudo apt-get install numlockx from a shell terminal, or by using Synaptic (search for ‘numlockx’). On Mandriva One, numlock is running out of the box. By the way, numlock enables the keyboard’s Numeric Lock (Num Lock) during X11 session initialization.

The Edge: Wanna guess?

Final Verdict: Linux and BSD followers tend to regard critics and critical reviews of their favorite distro with disdain. I used to be like that, too. Now, I’m just looking for a distro that works, that perfect distro. In a review of this sort, it is difficult to cover every facet, and I’m sure I’ve left one or two features out. But I think if you’ve read at least seventy five percent of what I’ve written here (escusing the bad grammar and all the other crimes I’ve commited against written English ;)) you’d have a pretty good idea which distro is worth installing on your PC.

  2. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this superb blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will share this blog with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

  3. Mandriva has an excellent control panel, it also runs most all media files (using “restricted”).
    All Distros have their strong points. What distro you end up choosing is you own personal preference.
    Windows work great (except the consent attacks, the MS monopoly, spying and other issues), but Linux somehow seems to advance faster. We URGE YOU, THE USER TO EXPERIMENT, YOU WILL FIND THE “PERFECT DISTRO”. At least Linux systems allow you to decide what is best. Please do not take the communities efforts for granted.

    Thank you sincerely a devoted Linux User. Peace
