Curse ye, Mandrake!

I've been using Mandrake for over a year and am hooked. It's not my favourite distro, but I can't stop using it!

Every time I switch (to Ubuntu, SuSE, Debian etc.) I always switch back after a few weeks (the record is Kubuntu, which I kept for a month).

What makes Mandrake so usable for a power user? It provides simple administration tools (drakconf) whilst at the same time not limiting you by removing development packages or oversimplifying. As long as this stays, I'll be keeping Mandrake. Just without the evil Galaxy theme.
