I have switched to Linux Mint already - testing it and all.  Yet my main
distro is Mageia/Cauldron (coming from Mandriva/Cooker since 1999)
You may have missed my point that some of us are required to play nicely
with the other OSs and support & communicate with others.  That's why
selected commercial softwares like Skype and Teamviewer are unavoidable.

I apologize if I offended your sensibilities and will continue to
support Mageia with upcoming releases.
