I hear (K)Unbuntu often, even Debian and Fedora often. Although I am quite devoted to sticking with Mandriva, there have been times I wanted to explore other distros. The thing is, the most important thing after a while, was not use Windows. Mandriva pleased me. Going from Windows to Linux is a bit of a leap and can be exciting, right? To me, it was. From one distro to another, not the same feeling.
That's where I am at. I'd like to try other distros, for fun, see what it has to offer, maybe use it as a secondary distro or whatever, but are any of these distros DIFFERENT than Mandriva, and what I mean by that, are there different programs, a truely different way of using the distro.
Suse was different, but had a lot of the same applications and it didn't turn out. I gave that up after a while; couldn't even get some things to work.

So, (i'm sorry, this reply/message is probably getting too confusing to read) what would make those distros I mentioned worth while when I have Mandriva already?
