Widely unknown, but simply the best distro out there. Easy to use for newcomers while developers will appreciate things like the clang default compiler, very current versions (as of today, Cooker has glibc 2.26, kernel 4.12.4, binutils 2.29, Qt 5.9.1, mesa 17.2-rc2. clang 5.0 -- way ahead of most others) and good packaging practices.

What more could anyone want from a distro?

I have been an old timer in linux (used slackware, debian, suse, fedora, etc) and I have always liked, since back in the days, the simplicity of Mandrake.

I like OpenMandriva because it seems to follow the same rule: Keep things simple and have them running with zero (or minimal) configuration.

I would definitely recommend this distro to any newcomer (or even intermediate user) in the linux world.

Good job OpenMandriva!!!

I like it and always liked Mandriva based distros, but unfortunately the community is small and it's only developed by 3 part-time developers (according to their forums), it could be a perfect distro if more people contributed.
