Nice! Mageia is on 1st place. I would have expected CentOS (RHEL) or Debian, but no ...

Nice.

I do run a couple of magiea servers for my business and at home. I still find MMC (drakconf) to be the greatest thing ever. I wish I knew perl so I could help maintain it.

My rasp pi install is fedora, and several years old now, it's good, but when something funny happens, I find myself hitting google to find out what's gotta be done, where as Mageia rarely cocks up, and often the GUI can be used to sort it out, not to forget that drakconf offers a cli version.

Oh, and urpmi, the Mageia package manager, is lightening fast compared to DNF. Updating fedora is frustrating at times.

And for those that say some of our packages are too old or not current enough, don't forget to check out backports repo, there's often gold hidden in there too.
