Excellent distro thats easy to install, comes with a welcome center and has a great control center.
All hardware was detected except printer which I added easily(configure in welcome center). Codecs,Java and Flash all installed from welcome center/apps. Resource usage is excellent. The system has a quick feel to it and having Firefox 60 Quantum was also a plus, along with many other recent apps in the welcome center.

Would recommend this to any user including newbies, but there is one catch. There hasnt been a recent iso update so after installing there were 1135 updates, so that took awhile. Definitely use the built in package manager urpmi as its solid and stable. My hope would be they would update the iso sometime soon.

Im surprised this distro is ranked so low as its excellent and performs as well or better than PCLinuxOS,ROSA and Mageia.

Definitely worth a look.

I remember the glory days of Mandrake / Mandriva. After her fall, I could not find the right system for myself for a long time. I found it only in OpenMandriva.
It's a great system. Fast, efficient, stable and functional. What is also important is modern, safe and offers what was offered by the old Mandriva - huge configuration possibilities and all this in a nice and functional GUI drake.

I recommend this system to everyone - home users, gamers, migrating windows users or even Linux geeks :)

I think this distro is best. It is more updated than ROSA Linux. Beautiful interface.
