I started useing Mandrake/Mandrive with v.10.0 Community and have upgraded as each version was released. I feel that Mandriva was premature in the release of the 2006 version. It does boot faster but that's about all, I have not found it to be any faster in overall preformance. I have successfully been able to install Nvidia drivers in every release till I installed 2006.0 and now no matter what trick I try I cannot make it work. I am not running any exotic setup and it has always worked in the past. I read that very few if any are experiencing issues with the PowerPack edition though, makes me wonder what tweaks they have done to the drivers or to the Xserver. At anyrate I do feel that its a poor way to force people to either aquire a boxed set or membership. All in all its a good distro but a little dissapointing as there seemed to be no forward movement. If you install KDE 3.4.2 in a 2005LE box you have a better system, of course this is just my opinion.
