    It was rejected as a Ford name though....But a bunch of other GM companies have released different cars with the Nova badge - Notably Vauxhall (The old Corsa though Opel called it a Corsa). The current Opel Corsa is sold in South America now as the Chevy Nova. Good ol' GM, cos it's about a third of the size of an American Nova.Anyway , back to Penguins...

    I dont so much like it, but if the default look of the gui gets better, it would be a redeeming
    factor. I've always thought that mandrake's graphical look was the worst...untill windoze xp came along. these things are silly for me to complain about though because mandrake is why I'll never, ever, ever have to touch a computer running xp.
    hail mandriva, even if it's goofy sounding!

    Whenever I say Mandriva, I think in my head "Mangina"

    If not Mandrake, they should have named it something else!

    Yep me too, love that damn Deuce Bigalow. But it's supposed to be pronounced Mandreeva from what I hear.
