is URPMI since is a Mandriva fork. Mandriva uses RPMs

I am waiting for the stable version to give it a whirl. No time to be a beta tester.

This is the stable version downloaded from their website !

Rpmdrake is the package manager per your second post.

Not fond of it but will try and see if it grows on me.

The distro looks good and user friendly after some changes.

Thanks for the reply.

an Ubuntu fan you might want a distro that has GNOME to feel familiar. Mandriva is KDE by default, PCLOS and Mageia I believe is KDE also.

I was playing for the 1st time with Win7. I can not believe how MS copied a lot from KDE even the System Monitor that has been in KDE for years is close on looks and info as the Win7 Task Manager...
