My Praises to Mandriva 2006

Hi everyone !,
Normally everyone usually post questions to a forum for advice or help with a problem, I have many times but I just want every Linux user to know that Mandriva 2006 is as good as and better than WinXP. Forget about the dual mount machines now. Mandriva 2006 Linux does everything I could possibly want out of a desktop machine except having a decent CAD application. I have had very few problems setting the OS and the apps up on my business machine.

My machine;
Compaq Evo 510
1.8 GHz Pentium 4
256 MB RAM
20 GB Maxtor hard drive
Intel 82845 Video chip set
Intel 845 AC'97 Audio chip set
Intel EtherExpress Pro/100 network card
3Com 56K external business modem through the serial port
Lite-On external USB CD/DVD burner
Compaq USB powered speakers
Sony Headphones
MAG Innovision LCD monitor
HP Deskjet 3740 printer

My Apps;
KDE 3.4 desktop
Kppp dialer
Complete ALSA sound control
Firefox 1.54
Opera 8.5
Complete OpenOffice Suite
Kaffeine media player
KsCD music cd player
K3b burner
GanttProject project control app
The Gimp
Nvu web developer

What more could you ask for out of a home office business machine ?
Easier than "Plug and Play" !
