| The most common misconception about Mandriva is that it's 'not free'. 
| This takes several forms - the belief that you have to pay or join the 
| Club to get updates, or that the freely available versions of Mandriva

| It's a good "final RC", with enough things to ponder over them. And some
| deep thinking will be needed indeed when choosing a distro (I need to
| choose at least one distro for the laptop and one main distro for the
| desktop, both with good Qt3/Qt4/Python development tools), knowing that
| this month is also supposed to bring us:
|     * openSUSE 10.3 (from the Microsoft alliance)
|     * Ubuntu/Kubuntu 7.04
|     * Debian Etch (or maybe not)
|     * Fedora 7
|     * possibly CentOS 5 and Scientific Linux 5.
