That's true that google is, and will be real good at giving people the 
correct address. I use google a lot for that very reason when going to a 
web site, when I want to avoid the possibility of getting to a domain 
squatters web site, or worse.

Magiea seems like a likely misspelling, since mageia means magic. I know 
I keep wanting to spell it that way, and have to keep  correcting myself.

I don't know whether it's worth it for Mageia to pick up a few extra 
domain names or not. But I thought I'd bring up the idea.
