Well, I'm afraid I couldn't be in much help right now. You see, I'm not 
actually using Mageia on a daily basis yet. I installed it upon release 
to see what it would be like. I do run it from time to time just as a 
test drive. So, maximum I could provide now is some feedback.

I was impressed by how much Mageia team succeeded to do in a short period 
of time. I liked Mageia's solid look and feel in general.

However there was something I personally would like to see changed. I 
mean Mageia Control Center and its tools. I know it was just inherited 
from Mandriva. But I disliked it enormously. I've read it is planned for 
a complete re-design, and I think it is very smart decision.

So, for now I'm just an interested watcher. And 2 things I've mentioned 
so far, Control Center, and LTS may convince me to join the community in 
the future.

One thing only could bring Mageia out of my consideration, if all at a 
sudden Mageia team would decide to join "Let's Look Like Smart-Phone" 
madness that lately affected GNOME world.
