Mandrake 7.2: Odyssey to Mediocrity
It's anyone's guess whether runtime problems are due to libraries, or to unflagged dependencies, even the “optimized” Mandrake kernel 2.2.17. (This is an issue I'll discuss another time, but suffice it to say that an increasing number of Linux distributions have souped-up kernels and are inadvertently making an argument for standardization in the process.) For whatever reason, or combination of reasons, a good many of the applications included with Mandrake are not able to run or don't run as smoothly as they do under other distributions.
Mandrake is the kind of distribution one wants to like very much. It's cheery, and the good folks at Mandrakesoft have been so generous with packages, one wants to be able to say, “Well done!” The best one can, honestly, get away with is to admit that it's good in some parts. Most frequently, those parts have to do with ideas, rather than the implementation thereof.
