Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "Mandriva recently released its first distro of the year, dubbed Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring. Like previous releases, Spring is available in five editions, two of which can be freely downloaded. I installed and worked with the USD 76 Powerpack edition, which includes support and several gigabytes of packages. Not only does Powerpack score over other multiple CD/DVD free-of-cost distros, it also makes competing non-free distros eat dust."

no...we faithful Mandriva users show our loyalty by paying for a club membership and supporting the distro in real terms in addition to testing and submitting bug reports:)
Seriously, I still rate Mandriva the highest for both noobs and advanced users alike simply because they have the best distro with some of the best configuration tools.
I have distro hopped like mad since I "discovered" gnu/linux via RH7.3 but Mandriva has won out all other distros ever since.
