I'm a Mandrake user... and love it. But I've also used RH a lot, and installed it and Mandrake on all my current machines (2 desktops and a laptop). Of all of them, only 1 install went "perfectly" from RH, whereas ALL went perfectly with Mandrake (except for a DSL configuration that I fixed pretty quickly with advice from ths forum... and I note that RH blew that one also
So my vote: Mandrake! They're currently at 9.1 with 9.2 out as "release candidate" and scheduled for release mid-end October/Nov. (Oct 15 if you support them throught the Mandrake Club
, and a few weeks later for general release.
