      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

That's an almost impossible question to answer. There are so many interpretations of that question, that I wouldn't no where to begin. If you simply mean in terms of raw speed, no, it is most deffinatly not the most powerful OS out there.

 

It is reasonably stable, reasonably fast, and in my opinion, is a wonderful compromise betweent he two. There's a lot of easy to install software using the built in package manager, good config tools for those not expertly skilled with linux, and a friendly feal, without being overly friendly, like lycoris or Linspire.

 

Why don't you ask about the specific terms of power you are concerned with, then I can answer you directly.

Mandriva is a linux dist and we all know linux can do infinite loops in three seconds flat so Mandriva is obviously incredibly fast ;)

Oh, we're powerful. Very powerful. We know where your children play, and it'd be a shame if a fire were to ruin these nice curtains of yours...

I'd say Mandriva is quite powerful, whilst most other distros are somewhat powerful. Windows, of course, is slightly powerful and Macs are a bit powerful.

 

I think that clears it up.

 

Mandriva may know where your children play, but it segfaults when trying to work out what you did last summer.

That is amazingly meaningless, and this whole thread is totally meaningless.

power is a varied term, you need to justify how you are using it.

I used mandrake from 8.0 on. When the game City of Heroes came out a year ago, I switched back to windows to be able to play with my friends (winex ran it horribly when it first came out). Mandriva 2005 let me come back to linux. I cannot say how impressed I have been with this latest release. It is incredibly powerful.

not all-powerful, just enough to equal the energy radiated by the sound of one hand clapping in the middle of the forest where a tree has fallen.
