The end of Mandriva, the beginning of Rosa and Magiea.

Mandriva 2011 is going to be the last Mandriva. The Business of Mandriva SA was bought out by the Russians some time ago. The original French programmers went over and formed Mageia. But they did not have the resources of Mandriva SA. So Mageia was sorely lacking in applications. They forked the current Mandriva Cooker and produced Mageia 1, as an upgrade to Mandriva 2010.2. If you ran Mageia 1, you had Mandriva 2010.2 backward compatibility, and you could draw on both Mageia 1 and Mandriva 2010.2 Sources together.

Mandriva 2011 was launched in 2011 from Rosa labs. They also released Rosa 2011. Mandriva 2011 was just Rosa 2011 with a different coat of paint. It was supposed to be the official successor to Mandriva 2010.2. So you had a choice. If you were running Mandriva 2010.2, you could upgrade to Mageia 1, but if you did that, you couldn't upgrade to Mandriva 2011, and vice Versa. In mid 2012, Rosa labs released Rosa 2012 LTS, which was an incremental upgrade to Mandriva 2011, dropping the Mandriva name completely. Mandriva 2010.2 ended support in June of 2012, and Mandriva 2011 is going to cease support in February of 2013. My Mame Console runes Mandriva 2011, and as a result of that, will require a move to Rosa 2012 LTS for continued Support.

Both OSes package WahCade, and other emulators, so I am going to audit what is supported under both Rosa 2012 LTS, and Mageia 2.

I tried Mandriva once on my test pc, but it didn't run well.
I'll stick to Lubuntu.

Core 2 duo 8400 @3600, 4 gig mem, Geforce 9500. Mame, Mess, Daphne, and some more.

I plan on checking Ubuntu using a laptop of mine. What edition do you run?

On my cab i run Lubuntu 12.04.
Lubuntu is the LXDE edition of Ubuntu.
I am setting up a new mainboard for my cab which is running Lubuntu 12.10.
Lubuntu is very fast and lightweight, and a lot of emulators are readily available, even more after adding some PPA's.
