I have been using Mandrake/Mandriva/Mageia since 2002. I am a senior 
citizen with no technical background and strictly a gui user. Mandrake 
was an excellent alternative to Windows. It was easy to install and use. 
Most importantly there was a community available that provided excellent 
support no matter how dumb my question. This community both local and 
thru mageia is still providing excellent support. Another item of equal 
importance is that no matter how many mistakes, crashes etc I still have 
a /home partition with my data intact about 99% of the time. I also back 
it up. I installed mageia on my wife's computer and she has no problem. 
The major everyday programs are excellent.

In summary, for a new user the ease of installation is most important 
including the hardware support. Program stability and community support 
is next in importance.
