Comment: Mandrake is a bit odd anyways (Score 2, Informative) 142 142

I have tried many different flavors of Linux. Fedora, Slackware, Debian, Mandrake and my new favorite Suse 9.2. I have to say that my subjective impression of Mandrake is that it is just odd. This doesn't surprise me then that they would make some odd business decisions.

Many of the distros features seemed like they had been thrown in with the basic intent of trying to be like Windows and now this naming scheme seems to remind me of the same thing.

'Limited Edition 2005'= 'Windows ME'

Just sounds too similar for my taste!
