Don't want to start a distro war, but do they give good reasons? I mean
Mandrake was based on redhat to start with. I actually ran Fedora 4 for
a while, then switched to Mandriva because it was a more complete
distro, and easier to setup. It sits higher on the distrowatch website's
page hit ranking too.
Of course, none of that amounts to much if it doesn't work :-( To tell
the truth, if I was to switch, I might consider Suse, as we use that at
work - mainly because of the support from Novell.
Oh and Jarod's guide pretty much applied to what I had to do to install
mythtv under Mandriva. I used it extensively.
