You use Mandrake but tell people to stay away from Mandriva?? SUSE, Mandriva and Fedora are in the top 5 distros (distrowatch.com) for a reason.
Different distros suit different people, each distro has its own personality. The top/mainstream distros tend to cater for a broad range of users and are not always for everyones taste
