Can I triple boot or get rid of Mandriva?

Recommended Posts

Guest LukeOX

I have Vista and Mandriva installed on my laptop. My vista boot disk is currently broken. I have Mandriva but I want Ubuntu because more Linux software is available for Ubuntu. Is there a way to triple boot or can I install Ubuntu over Mandriva?

1. You can install Ubuntu over Mandriva- trivially.

2. The Ubuntu repos are not bigger than Mandrivas- for sure. Just enable in Mandriva the existing unofficial repos (PLF and such).

Both distros comply to the opensource directives, and don't offer ***oficially*** closed source or commercial stuff. But you can add this stuff, if you wish, via unofficial repos.

I'm not a big fan of Mandriva, or Ubuntu. But! if I had to choose one of the two for my box, I would surely choose Mandriva, for various reasons, which I will not care to explain here.
