You might want to try looking at Google Groups' archives of 
alt.os.linux.mandriva for more comments. As with the other forums, some 
like it, others don't. A significant number of those who don't like it 
have moved to Mageia, because they believe it's truer to its Mandriva 
roots than MDV 2011.

I haven't tried MDV 2011 yet, so I can't comment from personal 
experience with it, but many of those comments are the reason I switched 
to Mageia. As I've said in this forum before, it seemed to me that The 
new Mandriva was the fork that went off in a new direction, while Mageia 
remained on the course I preferred. While I'm not against looking at new 
things, I would caution against allowing that newness to move us too far 

And now that I've thoroughly mixed my metaphors...
