I have tried for the last three weeks to generate a review of Mandrake 9.0 without much success. Not that I have ever been accused of being at a loss for words, but this particular release has left me speechless. I can't think of much to say about this release that hasn't already been said about several other Linux distributions. Perhaps that's the problem. As I have been working with this release, I have had this reoccurring thought - "This looks like YALR (Yet Another Linux Release)".
