yes, that was funny, first he complains of no codec (likely patented) and then 
about no media sources, which would solve the first one. /o\

my favourite part is about the error which he doesn't understand, where it's 
actually saying it's out of disk space. since it's a live version, he likely 
did a live install with not much memory.

also, the partitioner warns him that changing type will remove his data? 
what's wrong about that? both formatting and changing type (if not formatted) 
it's still data gone.

also it starts off with that he expects mageia to diverge from the mandriva 
way. it's an odd premisse to start a review from.

furthermore, he gives alot of subjective feelings.
