I am surprised that Mandriva 2006 was not mentioned once as it happens to be one of the friendliest distro out there...even friendlier than the Ubuntu distro.

Take a look at and you will be pleased to find useful information (tips & tricks) on how to install, configure (play all media types e.g. CDs, DVDs, video files, etc.). Though the web site ends with �fr�, it�s all in English!!!

The reason I didn't mention Mandriva 2006 was because I have yet to use it - the last version I used was still called Mandrake! I thought it was best, and fairer, to stick to the distributions that I've tried.

In your article, you mention that Debian and Ubuntu have apt. One was left to believe that Suse did not have this. Actually, Suse 10.0 ships with apt and yum.

Although you can use Apt, the 'average user' probably wouldn't try using apt - they would just use the default instead. I still feel that the package management abilities of Ubuntu are superior, but SUSE isn't too far behind!

Just an aside, suse 10.0 also includes apt, which I've been using to keep my systems up to date.
