Mandrake 9.1 beats RH in each and every one of those categories: installion and speed being the main 2 IMHO. And not having MP3 support built in for RH is just borderline retarted....I know its easy to get working, but for a new user, loading a MP3 might be one of the first things they wanna do, not search and download a MP3 playing plugin or whatever crap RH has pulled.
Ive said it at least 228739723 times now, RH = SERVER. Drake = Desktop. LISTEN PEOPLE!!
