It is obvious that the reviewer was a little confused -- and I have 
doubts that this confusion has anything to do with Mageia.  What can I 
say, we don't choose the reviewers :-\
 From his comments he seems to have been using a live kde iso of 
Mageia.  I didn't get the impression that he was doing an upgrade, but 
who knows ?

His remarks that a desktop design that was in his opinion "ok" 2 years 
ago is "archaic" today sounds like he was deliberately trying to find 
fault, instead of being objective.
I have the impression that he doesn't have a very good grasp of hardware 
and Linux.
Or maybe logic.  He says he is generally pleased with Mandriva, then 
complains about aspects of Mageia which are just like Mandriva.
He makes a point about no codecs being available out of the box, which 
probably should be corrected for mga2.
