Aye, I hadn't used Mandriva for some time (it was my first Linux distro), but neither Fedora Core or Ubuntu worked correctly on my laptop, but when I tried Mandriva 2007 everything worked right out of the box. It even asked me if I want to install a special driver for my widescreen, so everything is displayed correctly, I clicked yes and that was the end of it, whereas in other distros I tried I had to hack through config files to achieve the same result. Nothing wrong with that, but I've come to enjoy easier life. Besides Mandriva 2007 Spring has come a long way forward since the days of 9.1 and I actually enjoy it. The compiz is nice and shiny and never crashed on me even though my laptop has a simple graphical accelerator, but I disabled it, because I'm not used to that wobbly feel and it actually distracted me. p.s. I've installed Windows Vista for two of my friends and I find that Mandriva 2007 Spring with compiz is more beautiful to the eye and has more shiny tricks. Of course beauty is in the eyes of beholder.
