new distro for a inspiron notebook
Hello out there!
Actually I'm using with my dell inspiron 6000 the mandriva 2006 distro. i'm really happy with that one. most things i needed out of the box.
But mandriva 2006 free edition use old software versions (i.e. openoffice). i know i could compile the new software version from the source, but if you install 20 applications from the source and installed also 50 libraries to install the application, then sometime you will use the overview. I really like and enjoy mandriva's softwaremanagement urpmi. It's definitly the way how it sould be handled for normal user. But the software repository isn't so big (yes i know easyuprmi) and not acutal.
so i'm looking for a new distro with a big, acutal repository and a good compatibility to my inspiron 6000 (bluetooth and wireless).
i'm looking forward to hear your comments about other distros and what experience you made?
