    This is a project that I have been following since I found out about Mandriva problems, I tried Mageia 1 and I liked it a lot, let's hope it continues on the right track, the only thing is that it is a pity that there is no official spin with Xfce

      Post it on the Mageia mailing lists, it may not get done, but at least your requests will be heard (well, read) xD.

      It's the good thing about a distro being almost entirely community-based.
      If they do a good job with the visuals and the performance continues as well as in the first version, it falls flat.
