think Mageia should be about:
- connecting >>> social media
- freedom >> co-creating
- the (user) experience
We have to broaden our user base. We

have tried many linux distributions. I was a great fan of Linux Mandrake, I
like YAST in the old SUSE. My biggest complaint about all these
- virtual desktops are great
- slow loading of the desktop
- bad support of patented multimedia codecs
I thought and am thing now, Linux should be very quick operating system, low
hardware requirements. Linux should be fun to use. Get things done easily,
not difficult and frustating to use.
