Well, YMMV, but that is precisely the kind of computer I want to have only
as far away from me as possible: I want to be in control, I have enough
emotions at work, at home, in transport and in recreation - I want my boxen
to be tools without *any* emotion or interest in me, just let them do for
me what I choose to imagine as far as they can. No more no less. Also, it
does not have to approach the looks of a mobile phone.

Anyway, I'll see what Mageia gives when it is there. So far she remains my
best choice still. (Compare my headers ;)
