Indeed, it's a pitty that Mandriva is loosing it's place in the spotlight, since it is a great distro, I too started my Linux affair with Mandrake.

Nowadays I prefer using Fedora for myself, but on other's computers I always go for Mandriva for its general speed and ease of configuration.

By the way, good work for the devs. That number of bug fixes sure looks impressive! And thanks for the nice list of documented new features ;)

PS: there's a typo in the article summary where it says "500 bug fixes since RC2" - should be since RC1.
