    What's the advantage of this distro? There seems to be a good amount of buzz on various sites/blogs regarding to this relesae.

    Also, any idea about what version of Gnome they use? I'm looking for a Gnome 3 alternative to Fedora.

    I think they default to KDE, FWIW.

    I don't like it. Broad com driver isn't included and wouldn't install. Couldn't figure out how to install flash, the documentation is scarce, and not all the mandriva instructions work either. I rate it a 3/10 in my experience.
