Hi ! I'm french and i started Linux in mid 2017 with Ubuntu. I rapidly learned command line and tested a lot of other distribution. I installed mageia 7.1 with KDE Plasma yesterday and upgraded to Cauldron. Mageia run well on my machine :D (CPU: Intel i3 GPU: AMD Radeon HD 5770).

Ubuntu and Manjaro make strange decisions those days (with snap packages, OnlyOffice). I'm interested in rpm distributions so i first tested fedora and OpenSUSE. I like the idea of OpenSUSE with the installer and a control center but it feels bloated with yast2, OBS and the fact that you can't install with the liveCD ISO file. Then i found Mageia. The installer and the control center are less bloated. It is stable even with Cauldron (Plasma 5.18.2).

I think Mageia have potential, even if sometime there are difficulties (for example the Mageia 7 release). It's not a big community but i'll talk about Mageia with others. I can report bugs, translate from english to french, doing documentation and promotion for the Mageia project.

any and all contributions gratefully received ;)
have a look here:
https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Internationa ... Team_(i18n)
https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Documentation_team

so, sign up for the mailing lists and join the IRC channels.

Again, welcome, and enjoy using Mageia.
hint: Cauldron, while seeming very stable, can toss its toys out of the toy-box and sulk, so take a snapshot regularly.
or live on the wild side, and see how well you can recover a sulking system

Joining this site was harder than opening a bank account overseas. I understand not wanting spam but I'm sure the bots have an easier time registering. lol
