A move too far?
I have been a Mandrake/Mandriva fan for years so when Mandriva went down the tube I had to jump ship.
The most mature at the time was PCLinuxOS so I went to that distro.
Having had some problems with X on my system I looked at others in the same family. I tried both Magiea and Open Mandriva and was disappointed with both for different reasons.
I have never managed to get on with RPMDrake and found that the package manager kept tripping me up. The same with DNF on Open Mandriva.
Another thing that jarred was the installation on Open Mandriva.
Being used to the Mandrake way of doing things I found Calamares a shock. Not that Open Mandriva was hard to use it just felt a bit rough in places and seems to have moved a lot further away from its origins than either PCLinuxOS or Mageia.
I might take a look at both when I have time, but if I were to chose to move distro my choice would probably be Mageia.
