    You have repeated twice:
    * Supports cross-compiling and virtualisation with docker and systemd-nspawn
    * Innovative new distributed build system based on ruby and docker

    what else is different in OMV? Everyone talks about the interface in their reviews but no one says what is under the hood. Can you? What can you you say about BFS and multi-tasking on OMV? Do you support it? How many line (aprox.) did you change form the original kernel (if you changed) in nrjQL? What nrjQL stands for, what does it do different?

    How about other features like compressing ram (SuperOS) or better customization of kde (eliminating unusefull applets or at least posibillity to do it) and other stuff. What is the security type on mandriva? SElinux, apparmor? Checksum checking for unwanted modified files, auto-configured firewall, etc..?

    What else non-technical details can you provide besides general aspects as customised, better, new, easier… I mean concrete details…?

    how about contacting Mageia and asking the to come over, they sure aren’t doing a very good job!

    do you keep an eye out at other distros? Simplicity of Mint is something to inspire. And Scientific Linux sees hardware better than OMV. You still have booting problems on non-uefi systems, 2009 year of production date. Very bad!
