I had MDK 9.0 installed for a week or so. I thought it was pretty good. The installer was painless. My M$ shares were mounted after the first re-boot and folder sharing worked well, even Web sharing (nice feature). The only devices that didn't work were my Sandisk card reader and Agfa Scanner. They showed up in usbview, however no access to them. The only major hangup I had was no way to disable the x server on login. Not a big deal really until I tubed the Nvidia driver install (wrong kernel ver
). All in all it is a very good distro for the configuring challenged newbie. Lots of Wizdrakes to use.
