I am european, and what I can tell you is that Mandriva is less and less popular.
I don't think this distro will survive much any longer.
I agree it was a good distro which contributed to the Linux popularization (even if I never really liked because of its messy and too candy interface).

But it hasn't evoluated much recently and is now targeting only the companies, when it was popular among the end-user.
They spend all their little ressources in stupid marketing, useless association and certification, losing their community... They don't understand their large community was essential to convince the companies. They even lost their brain, Mr Duval.

So, I think the end of Mandriva is not far.
