Downloaded the KDE One cd yesterday, and by my suprice almost everything worked on my laptop by default.
Powersaved and so on...
The only thing that didn't work was my broadcom wireless, but this card is really bad in linux, but with ndiswrapper that was up and running as well.

Just bought the Powerpack version, doesn't cost that much and are installing as we speak, just to support the guys at Mandriva.

Good work...and it looks really nice, a nice release.
Have been using Ubuntu since the first release but I think it is rather buggy, at least on my hardware.
