An operating system based on GNU software, the linux kernel, and the redhat package manager (RPM). One of the easiest to use and most autoconfigured versions of linux.

Used to be called Mandrake Linux before a name copyright lawsuit was filed by the creater of Mandrake the Magician
Example 1:
Yeah i just got the new version of limewire. The RPM for it Didn't work so i had to compile it from source.

Example 2:
Person 1. Ditch Windows, switch to Mandriva Linux. No viruses and its completely free.

Person 2. Isnt Linux Hard?

Person 1: Not mandriva, its fully autoconfigured for most computers.
