Mageia Linux

I've used Linux as my main operating system for many years now. Started out with Mandrake, stuck with it when it became Mandriva. But the past year and a half have not made me confident about Mandriva's future directions, and so I stuck with Mandriva 2010.0 (which worked beautifully for me) long past its expiration date.

Until recently, when I finally made the transition to Mageia Linux. Not much of a transition! Am still tidying things up, post-installation: it wouldn't be Linux if there weren't always a cloud of "issues" to be resolved after a fresh install. But basically it works, and once I get it pulled into shape it ought to work well. We shall see. In a myriad of such small ways the spirit of do-it-yourself lives on.
